Report on densest coccolithophore population in Southern Ocean


Dr. Barney Balch led a team of four authors from Bigelow Laboratory and two from the National Oceanography Centre, who reported on their observations of the densest coccolithophore population in the Southern Ocean. Their [140]findings were published in the most recent edition of Limnology and Oceanography. The paper is available here. A visual summary of the coccolithophores bloom along the Pantagonian Shelf is included as an [141]electronic appendix.

Bigelow Laboratory colleagues who collaborated on the paper include Dave Drapeau, Bruce Bowler, Emily Lyczkowski, and Laura Lubelczyk. The National Centre for Oceanography colleagues were Stuart Painter and Alex Poulton.News Sidebar
