Caption: Falkland Islands, Terra satellite image. The Falkland Islands lie in the south west Atlantic Ocean and are composed of West Falkland (left), East Falkland (right) and a number of smaller islands. The two main islands are separated by a narrow channel, the Falkland Sound. The Falkland Islands are a British overseas territory, although Argentina also lays claim to them. The bright blue/green streaks in the sea are blooms of marine phytoplankton, which are primitive unicellular (single-celled) plants. Image taken on 13th January 2008.
