Picophytoplankton biomass distribution in the global ocean
Abstract. The smallest marine phytoplankton, collectively termed picophytoplankton, have been routinely enumerated by flow cytometry since the late 1980s during cruises throughout most of the worldExpand
Turbulence increases the average settling velocity of phytoplankton cells.

It is a well known fact that stirring keeps particles suspended in fluids. This is apparent, for instance, when shaking medicine flasks, when agitating tea deposits in a mug, or when heavy winds fillExpand
Productivity changes in the Mediterranean Sea for the twenty-first century in response to changes in the regional atmospheric forcing
The Mediterranean Sea is considered as a hotspot for climate change because of its location in the temperate region and because it is a semi-enclosed basin surrounded by highly populated andExpand
Historical changes of the Mediterranean Sea ecosystem: modelling the role and impact of primary productivity and fisheries changes over time
The Mediterranean Sea has been defined “under siege” because of intense pressures from multiple human activities; yet there is still insufficient information on the cumulative impact of theseExpand
The relevance of deep chlorophyll maximum in the open Mediterranean Sea evaluated through 3D hydrodynamic-biogeochemical coupled simulations
Abstract Decades of oceanographic observations on the Mediterranean Sea have consistently indicated that its open-sea region presents oligotrophic characteristics during long periods of the yearExpand
Biogeochemical control of marine productivity in the Mediterranean Sea during the last 50 years
The temporal dynamics of biogeochemical variables derived from a coupled 3-D model of the Mediterranean Sea are evaluated for the last 50 years (1960–2010) against independent data on fisheries catchExpand
On the causal structure between CO2 and global temperature
We use a newly developed technique that is based on the information flow concept to investigate the causal structure between the global radiative forcing and the annual global mean surfaceExpand
Climatic Control of Upwelling Variability along the Western North-American Coast
The high biological production of the California Current System (CCS) results from the seasonal development of equatorward alongshore winds that drive coastal upwelling. While several climaticExpand
Med-CORDEX initiative for Mediterranean climate studies
The Mediterranean is expected to be one of the most prominent and vulnerable climate change “hot spots” of the 21st century, and the physical mechanisms underlying this finding are still not clear.Expand
Understanding the Causes of Recent Warming of Mediterranean Waters. How Much Could Be Attributed to Climate Change?
During the past two decades, Mediterranean waters have been warming at a rather high rate resulting in scientific and social concern. This warming trend is observed in satellite data, field data andExpand
