Fall 2007 Update: Southern New England Subregion

Charts of SST conditions

SST conditions were warm in the Southern New England subregion beginning in fall and lasting well into winter. Spring SST conditions were closer to the long-term mean or only slighter cooler than average. The 2007 spring bloom was relatively early and was very intense with chlorophyll concentrations around 5 mg m-3. The winter 2007 zooplankton biomass for Southern New England was extremely low, well below the long-term mean for the subregion. Since the January-February zooplankton estimate is provisional, caution should used in interpreting this trend.
