[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: In order to investigate the structure of phytoplankton communities, chlorophyll a and phytoplankton communities were measured at 4 stations from August 7 to 11, 2006 at Kongsfjorden, Svalbard Islands, Norway. Mean water temperature was 5.15°C and salinity was 30.02psu on surface. Pico and nano sized phytoplankton were dominate in the study area. As a result, Phytoplankton might be controlled by physical factors such as Norwegian Atlantic Current at the study area.

Purpose: Recognizing the distribution and diversity of phytoplankton in Arctic fjords
