Microbes of the genus Prochlorococcus, a photosynthetic plankton, are the base of the food chain in the world's oceans and also absorb a large amount of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Pictured: plankton bloom off the coast of South America.

Over the Bay of Biscay, a NASA satellite captures the prettiest photo of phytoplankton you will probably ever see http://pops.ci/12t4pcT

On April the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this true-color image of the dynamic growth of a springtime phytoplankton bloom in the Bay of Biscay.

A spring bloom of phytoplankton lingered in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Iceland in early June, 2014. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this true-color image on June 5. At that time, swirling jewel tones of a vast bloom were visible between banks of white clouds.

Phytoplankton blooms in the Barents Sea off the coast of Norway and Russia, shown in natural color from NASA's Aqua satellite on July 10, 2014. Without sampling the water directly it's impossible to know the type of phytoplankton, but past analyses suggest that the green bloom is diatoms and the white bloom is coccolithophores.

Algae blooms as seen from space

Most individual phytoplankton are too small to be seen with the naked eye - but together in their giant blooms, they are visible from space.

Tiny phytoplankton barely visible to the eye form massive blooms seen clearly from space. This bloom in the Barents Sea was imaged by a NASA satellite on July 6

wildfires, satellite imageSouthern Idaho's four large wildfires have burned 495 square miles since lightning hit the area six days ago. The entire city of Boise is 80 square miles. This satellite image shows smoke billowing from the four blazes burning in what appears to be a straight line across southern Idaho, just east of Boise The fires have consumed cattle, structures, and forced mandatory evacuations for people who live in the area.
