Abstract

NASA's Earth Observatory has released an intriguing image of green-tinged ice in Antartica's Granite Harbor, a cove near the Ross Sea. The image prompted NASA to clarify that this was not a huge St. Patrick's Day stunt to dye the water green, but rather the result of phytoplankton being attached to the ice.
