Capricorn Channel Blooms

Slicks of Trichodesmium gather into windrows off the Queensland, Australia coast inside the southern portion of the Great Barrier Reef. Landsat 8, which collected the above view on September 15, 2018, also viewed the same area sixteen days ago when the blooms were already widespread but distributed differently.

A click on the above image will get you a larger version having the same projection as the August 30 image.
