False-colour satellite image of the world's oceans, showing the distribution of phytoplankton in the surface water. The colours represent varying phytoplankton densities from red (most dense) through yellow, green and blue to violet (least dense). Grey areas are data gaps. This image is an average of distributions for April- June 1979 and shows the blooming of phytoplankton over the entire North Atlantic during the northern spring. The image was produced from data acquired by the Coastal Zone Colour Scanner, one of the instruments on NASA's Nimbus-7 research satellite.
