Chloropyll Concentrations along the West Florida Shelf: Analysis of Temporal Variability Using Remote Sensing

Document Type


Publication Date



The focus of the ECOHAB program (Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms) in Florida is to gain a better understanding of red tides and their underlying causes. Satellite data are currently being analyzed for identifying blooms of the major algal contributor, Gymnodinium breve (Brown, 1998). Identifying G. breve blooms may lead to the prediction and ultimate management of harmful algal bloom events. In situ chlorophyll, pigment (HPLC), and other oceanographic data have been collected on a monthly basis along the WFL shelf as part of the ECOHAB program since 1997.
