Plankton Bloom: One of the larger regularly observed blooms occurs in the North Atlantic Ocean near Iceland and Greenland in Northern Hemisphere summer. This photo dates July 10, 2008. The phytoplankton color the water with swirls in shades ranging from deep green to bright turquoise..The bloom hugs the western shore of Iceland. The land is largely snow-free except for mountain tops like the snow-covered peak of Snæfellsjökull, the volcano where Jules Verne's travelers began their descent into the bowels of the Earth in his classic novel Journey to the Center of the Earth. Those who traveled to the volcano's summit at the end of the Snæfellsnes peninsula in western Iceland during July would have a good view of the pretty, reflective phytoplankton blooms in the Atlantic all around them.
