The discolouration of the bodies of water in this image is due to algal blooms which can be seen in areas of the Kattegat, southern Baltic Sea and the Gulfs' of Finland and Riga. Smoke plumes from fires in northwest Russia are also evident. Lee waves and cloud streets are visible over areas of Scandinavia.
