E1 Bloom – 16/05/2012

Andy Perkins (Skipper of the Plymouth Quest) has observed that the water on the way out to the E1 sampling station was ‘muddy’ in colour and on the underway sampling system the Chlorophyll a levels had been off the scale (scale maximum 5 mg.m-3).  The E1 CTD profile did indeed show a chlorophyll a abundance in the top 30m of the water column.
