Data coverage in the Southern Ocean is a limiting factor for a full understanding of physical and biological processes: still little is known about their seasonality as well as their regional distribution. In these conditions remote sensing becomes a key tool, as high resolution is possible both in space and time.Focus of this study is the Scotia Sea, included between the Drake Passage and the South Sandwich Islands, the North and South Scotia Ridge. Satellite based measurements of chlorophyll… CONTINUE READING
