A spring bloom of phytoplankton is captured in this image off of Ireland’s northwest coast in the North Atlantic Ocean. In the lower-right corner, we can see part of County Mayo’s coast – which appears pink in the false-colour image. Broadhaven Bay, with its opening facing north, is visible.
This image was acquired on 2 June 2006 by SPOT-5 with a spatial resolution of 10 m. The satellite is supported by ESA as a Third Party Mission, which means ESA uses its multi-mission European ground infrastructure and expertise to acquire, process and distribute data from the satellite to its wide user community.
