Several environmental/physical variables derived from satellite and in situ data sets were used to understand the variability of coccolithophore abundance in the subarctic North Atlantic. The 7-yr (1997–2004) time-series analysis showed that the combined effects of high solar radiation, shallow mixed layer depth (,20 m), and increased temperatures explained .89% of the coccolithophore variation. The June 1998 bloom, which was associated with high light intensity, unusually high sea-surface… CONTINUE READING
