It's another satellite image that looks like a water color - and in my favorite colors too! It's a natural-color image of a plankton bloom in the Barents Sea. Captured in September 2016 by ESA's Copernicus Sentinel-2A satellite.
Plankton, the most abundant type of life found in the ocean, are microscopic marine plants that drift on or near the surface of the sea. They are sometimes referred to as ‘the grass of the sea’ because they are the basic food on which all other marine life depends.
