Climate Warming Continues to Affect Northeast Shelf Waters and the Ocean Food Chain
Description: Warmer surface temperatures, increased wind speeds, and larger temperature differences among water masses are affecting the base of the food chain in ocean waters off the Northeastern U.S., modifying the timing and magnitude of plankton blooms in the region. These findings appear in the latest Current Conditions report from NOAA's Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC), which tracks ocean conditions on the Northeast Shelf. The report covers July through December 2015. [Source: Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NOAA)]
