Pale sediments are carried out to sea by the rivers of the Mergui Archipelago of Myanmar. Dark blue ocean waters mix with the sediment, creating turbulent swirls in this natural color satellite image. With the sediment comes valuable nutrients for plant life in the ocean, which can prompt the formation of phytoplankton blooms.
