Spring bloom starting at L4?

Given the sunny and calm conditions today, it is hardly surprising that the phytoplankton are responding.  The latest from the L4 buoy is showing ~3 mg/m3 of chlorophyll, and the waters appear to be green (although looks can be deceiving depending on what angle you are looking at with respect to the sun).  See:
