Monthly estimates of chlorophyll a, temperature, salinity, and nutrients were collected through sampling at two stations from January 2001 to January 2002, in and near Bandar Al-Khyran, the largest semi-enclosed bay on the southern coast of the Sea of Oman. Although the sampling location was at the limit of the tropical range, the seasonal changes of the coastal phytoplankton were more related to temperate dynamics, showing seasonal fluctuation of more than 10 o C. Sharp temperature drops… CONTINUE READING
