Sparkling like a jewel in the Atlantic Ocean, the Bermuda Islands are 150 small islands formed from the exposed peaks of an underwater volcanic mountain. The eight largest islands are arranged in a fish hook shape and are tied together with bridges and causeways. Coral reefs, the northernmost in the Atlantic, surround the land. Their calcium carbonate shells tint the water a bright blue-green color in this true-color image acquired by the Terra MODIS instrument on March 3, 2004.
