Description:

The marine habitat in the middle of an atoll, protected from the open ocean by the sturdy coral reef, is called a lagoon. The shallow lagoon of the Mataiva Atoll, in French Polynesia, stands out as a striking blue in this satellite image. The turquoise color and white ridges are caused by decaying coral reefs.
