Satellite reveals giant algal bloom in Baltic Sea

Earth satellite transmitted new images of an algal bloom.

The European Space Agency's Sentinel-2A captured this detailed image of an algal bloom in the middle of the Baltic Sea recently. The image reveals the bloom in exquisite detail as well as a ship heading into the ‘eye of this algal storm’. The ship’s wake can be seen as a straight dark line where the bloom has been disturbed by the ship’s propellers. Credit: COPERNICUS SENTINEL DATA (2015)/ESA
