Geographical area

Gulf of Bothnia

Observations 
Parameters

Chlorophyll pigment concentrations in water bodies

Description 
Summary

The project objectives are to follow long-term trends in the chlorophyll-a content of the seawater and thereby get an estimate of the phytoplankton biomass. The chlorophyll content of the phytoplankton has been monitored at one coastal station: Ore estuary (from 1988) and two open sea stations, Bothnian Bay and Bothnian Sea (from 1991).

Data from simultaneous sampling for water physics/chemistry are stored at the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, SMHI.
