Gulf of Oman

This eddy in the Gulf of Oman northeast of Muscat is made visible by slicks of the mixotrophic dinoflagellate, Noctiluca scintillans, that has plagued the Gulf in recent decades. This view of the blooms was collected on April 2, 2020 by Landsat 8. Click on the above image to get a much larger (41 megabyte) version.
