Image Caption: Plankton blooms and color variations in the Falkland Current east of the Argentina coast in the South Atlantic Ocean as seen from the Skylab space station in Earth orbit. This current flows north and northeastward along the Argentine coast to near 40 degrees south latitude where it meets the Brazil Current and the two swing eastward.
