This study provides and discusses the spatial distributions of abundances and sizes ofmarine-snowaggregates across the Ligurian Sea frontal system. A cross-front transect was sampled 34 times between 1992 and 1996, using the Underwater Video Profiler (UVP). AtlanticWater flows parallel to the Ligurian coast in the NWMediterranean Sea, where that current creates a quasi-permanent front that separates the central and coastal waters. The horizontal distribution of aggregates (N150 μmESD… CONTINUE READING
