Spring 2013 Update: Fall Chlorophyll Concentration - Northeast Shelf Ecosystem

Though regions of the Northeast Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem often have fall bloom activity, the ecosystem as a whole does not typically have a fall bloom. The below average chlorophyll concentrations in September through November indicate that many of the areas that often have a fall bloom did not have one in 2012. The low bloom productivity in fall is in contrast to the exceptionally high chlorophyll concentrations observed during the spring bloom.
