The Week in Pictures: Massive Phytoplankton Bloom, Bright Neon Bikes, and More (Slideshow)


Photo: TreeHugger

A NASA satellite has sent down an image of a phytoplankton bloom stretching across the Barents Sea, located north of Norway and Russia. The bloom is over 500 miles long and several hundred miles wide. While it is a common occurrence for the area during August, it is rare to get such a spectacular view.

We also have neon bicycles that pop up in Toronto, the story of photographers who dedicate their lives to documenting Earth's changing crust, and more in our photo roundup of the best images in TreeHugger this week.
