This Aqua/MODIS scene of the Gulf of Aden on the western end of the Arabian Sea, shows populations of phytoplankton carried along by the turbulent surface currents that are common in this region. This particular scene was collected on February 12, 2018, but the Gulf supports phytoplankton blooms during other seasons of the year as well.
