File:The Danube Spills into the Black Sea.jpg


English: This cloud-free Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) view of the Black Sea reveals the colourful interplay of currents on the lake’s surface. The green crescent shaped pattern in the north-western corner of the Black Sea is due to the nutrient-rich, sediment-laden discharge of the Danube River stimulating biological activity. The brighter, more turquoise patterns on the lake to the south and east are probably blooms of another type of phytoplankton.
