"Boilers" along the southeast coast of Bermuda. Along the south shore of Bermuda, waves break continuously along algal/vermetid reefs (composed of algae and molluscs, not coral), forming "boilers." Boilers are named because the continuous breaking of waves makes it look as if the sea is boiling. This photograph taken from the International Space Station shows the eastern half of the main islands of Bermuda. Land use is about 6 percent cropland, 55 percent developed and 34 percent rural. Reflective white-colored areas are buildings and other developments surrounded by green areas of vegetation. St. David’s Island is also home to the airport, with runways built out into Castle Harbour.

Bermuda Islands

A popular vacation spot 570 nautical miles off the coast of North Carolina, 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 image. This Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image was taken on August 1, 2003, by the Aqua satellite.

Bermuda

Located about 1,700 kilometers off the South Carolina shoreline in the Atlantic Ocean, Bermuda resembles a giant fish hook. The eye of the hook in the northeast is formed by Castle Harbour. The smaller enclosed body of water immediately below that is Harrington Sound. Under the water, coral reefs glow bright blue. The coral reflects light, coloring the shallow water blue and green. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this true-color image of Bermuda on March 4, 2004.

Hurricane Erin passed northeast of Bermuda early on September 10 with 115 mile-per-hour winds (a Category 3 storm on the Saffir-Simpson Scale), but causing very minimal damage. Astronauts aboard Space Station Alpha photographed the area on September 14, 2001. By then, the skies had cleared and Erin had become an extratropical low near Newfoundland.
