Summary
Abstract: To recognize glaciomarine characteristics and distribution of phytoplankton at Kongsfjorden, Svalbard Islands, Norway, water column characteristics (temperature, salinity, and Chl a concentration) was measured using YSI 6920 CTD and water samples at the surface was obtained in summer. Due to glacier melting and fluvial fresh water, at the upper surface (3.0 ℃ was occupied below 30 m with fresh upper surface water. In particular, the distribution of Chl a shows patch tendency irrelevant to the current
