Barents Sea

Click on the 29 July 2015 Aqua-MODIS image above to see a broader region at higher resolution, or get the full-resolution 13 megabyte version.

One day later, Landsat 8 captured a still more highly resolved view of the bloom at the bottom of the above MODIS image. (Download the full 20-megabyte Landsat 8 scene.)
