Discovery in the North Atlantic
Description: The spring phytoplankton bloom in the subpolar North Atlantic can begin up to 30 days earlier than previously thought as the result of eddies stratifying the near-surface waters, according to the results of a study. The discovery has implications for the Gulf of Maine, which is fed by the waters of the North Atlantic and supports similar species. [Source: University of Maine]
