The distribution of chlorophyll in the western Indian Ocean during the northeast monsoon period, February 13-July 16, 1965
MetadataShow full item record
This report contains the observations of phytoplankton pigment characteristics made during ATLANTIS II Cruise No. 15 in the western Indian Ocean and its reaches during the period of February 13 through July 16, 1965. As pointed out in a previous report for this region (Laird et al., 1964), the observations should by no means be considered synoptic since short-term variation will occur in biological measurements. The value of the present observations is greatly enhanced by the fact that they repeat and extend the previous data from ATLANTIS II Cruise No. 8 for the area, but are taken at the opposite period of the year for all regions. The data permit only a first approximation of the relative fertility in the area, yet the seasonal contrast becomes an important consideration in the analysis and interpretation of the data. It is believed that this represents the first such large-scale survey for Indian Ocean waters.

Multidecadal Indian Ocean variability linked to the Pacific and implications for preconditioning Indian Ocean dipole events Ummenhofer, Caroline C.; Biastoch, Arne; Böning, Claus W. (American Meteorological Society, 2017-02-15)The Indian Ocean has sustained robust surface warming in recent decades, but the role of multidecadal variability remains unclear. Using ocean model hindcasts, characteristics of low-frequency Indian Ocean temperature ...
Evaluating Southern Ocean biological production in two ocean biogeochemical models on daily to seasonal timescales using satellite chlorophyll and O2 / Ar observations Jonsson, Bror F.; Doney, Scott C.; Dunne, John P.; Bender, Michael L. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2015-02-04)We assess the ability of ocean biogeochemical models to represent seasonal structures in biomass and net community production (NCP) in the Southern Ocean. Two models are compared to observations on daily to seasonal ...
