The Yellow Sea

Remote sensing of ocean color in the Yellow Sea can be a challenge. Phytoplankton, suspended sediments, and dissolved organic matter color the water while various types of aerosols modify those colors before they are "seen" by orbiting radiometers.

The Aqua-MODIS data used to create the above image were collected on February 24, 2015. An 11-megabyte version is also available.
