Ocean Color Feature
Spring Bloom in the Bay of Biscay
The Bay of Biscay usually reaches the peak of its spring phytoplankton bloom in April, and this VIIRS image shows a bloom well underway on April 13, 2015. If trends during the past seventeen years are any indication, then we may expect the peak bloom in this region to grow still larger next year and perhaps even larger the year after that.
