Granite Harbor Antarctica • • Earth Image Gallery

Granite Harbor Antarctica, seen here, features a beautiful emerald green effect swirling through the waters off the coast. The photo was taken by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on board the Landsat 8 satellite. The green coloring in Granite Harbor is likely the result of phytoplankton floating atop the surface water that has also attached itself to the slush and ice.
