Critical regions: A GIS-based model of marine productivity hotspots

Abstract

Marine productivity hotspots can be defined as areas of high chlorophyll concentration and low temperature distribution. Here we demonstrate how Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can be used to define areas of high productivity and we use fishery data to verify model results and reveal areas of potential fishery locations. We develop a GIS model based on… (More)
