Abstract

On March 5th, the Operational Land Imager (OLI) aboard the Landsat 8 snapped a few stunning pictures of Granite Harbor, Antarctica. This cove close to the Ross Sea sports an unusual shade of green slush ice, which was probably formed by phytoplankton trapped in freezing waters, marine glaciologist Jan Lieser of Australia’s Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Center told NASA’s Earth Observatory.
