This image of the western Mediterranean Sea was taken by Sentinel-3A’s Ocean and Land Colour Instrument on October 16, 2016.
The islands of Corsica and Sardinia can be seen in the west with coast of Tuscany and the island of Elba to the northeast.
The waters along the east coast of Corsica and along the Italian coast are colored by discharge from the land following recent heavy rainfall.
