The green scum shown in these images is the worst algae bloom Lake Erie has experienced in decades. Such blooms were common in the lake's shallow western basin in the 1950s and 60s. Phosphorus from farms, sewage, and industry fertilised the waters so that huge algae blooms developed year after year.
These satellite images, acquired from Envisat's MERIS_FR sensor, show a vast algal bloom that could pose a risk to marine life in the Baltic Sea. The blue-green bloom, which stretches from Finland to parts of Germany and Poland, is the largest scientists have seen in the Baltic in recent years. They believe a prolonged stretch of warm sea temperatures and a lack of wind, coupled with fertiliser from regional agriculture washing into the Baltic, have caused the bloom.
