“Gotland is a Swedish island in the Baltic Sea. (The colors are natural.) Population explosions of phytoplankton occur when deep currents bring nutrients up to sunlit surface waters, fueling the growth and reproduction of the tiny plants.” - WSJ

3D #GEOINT from #WWII played a major role in ensuring success of D-Day Landing via @USGIF #remotesensing #war #history #map
“Here’s the summary content about the show:
During World War II, Hitler’s scientists developed terrifying new weapons of mass destruction. Alarmed by rumors of advanced rockets and missiles, Allied intelligence recruited a team of brilliant minds from British universities and Hollywood studios to a country house near London. Here, they secretly pored over millions of air photos shot at great risk over German territory by specially converted, high-flying Spitfires. Peering at the photos through 3D stereoscopes, the team spotted telltale clues that revealed hidden Nazi rocket bases. The photos led to devastating Allied bombing raids that dealt crucial setbacks to the German rocket program and helped ensure the success of the D-Day landings. With 3D graphics that recreate exactly what the photo spies saw, NOVA tells the suspenseful, previously untold story of air photo intelligence that played a vital role in defeating the Nazis.” ~ http://www.gotgeoint.com/archives/3d-geoint-from-the-wwii-played-major-role-ensuring-success-of-d-day-landing-and-more/
This is absolutely amazing - a phytoplankton bloom in the South Atlantic #remotesensing #envisat
Brilliant colors on a very large scale. This phytoplankton bloom in the South Atlantic was captured on Dec 2 2011. (via ESA - Space for our climate - Earth from Space: A southern summer bloom - images)
