Fires in Scotland and Ireland, Phytoplankton in the Atlantic – May 6th, 2011

57.7N 5.5W

May 6th, 2011 Category: Fires, Image of the day, Phytoplankton

United Kingdom and Ireland - May 3rd, 2011

Fires in Scotland and Northern Ireland continued to burn in this image taken one day after EOSnap first observed the blazes (click here for previous article).

The main fire in the Scottish Highlands continued to blow smoke across the Minch towards the Isle of Lewis, although here the smoke is blowing west-southwest.

Other fires may have still been burning in Northern Ireland (UK) and the northwestern parts of the Republic of Ireland, although the popcorn clouds above the region make it difficult to pinpoint the individual blazes.

Finally, in the full image, the bright green and turquoise phytoplankton bloom observed previously can still be seen flourishing in the Atlantic Ocean, southwest of the UK. There is also some evidence of a fainter bloom in the North Sea, to the northeast.

Several interesting phenomena can be observed in and near the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

First, multiple fires can be seen releasing smoke towards the northwest in the upper part of the full image.

The first close-up shows fires in Northern Ireland (UK) and the northwestern parts of the Republic of Ireland.

The second close-up shows fires in the Scottish Highlands, with smoke blowing across the Minch towards the Isle of Lewis.

Finally, a bright green and turquoise phytoplankton bloom can be observed in the lower left quadrant of the main image (also visible in greater detail in the third close-up).
