The coastal ocean is a complex biogeochemical “jambalaya” of phytoplankton, organic detritus, and inorganic particles. These materials yield intricate optical patterns discerned by the human eye as vibrant color contrasts that move with the variations of coastal currents. Mariners and fishers have long used these color patterns to discern tidal movements, frontal boundaries, and the subtle impulses of the coastal wind-to-sea system. In this issue, Jolliff et al. combined polar-orbiting ocean color sensors with data from geostationary satellites to rediscover the synoptic true color patterns of coastal areas and did so at a temporal frequency that is exceptional even in the modern satellite era. This technique is a potential way forward in the study of the small-scale turbulent movements of ocean water, which remain largely as enigmatic today as they were to our ancient forebearers.
