integrated chlorophyll concentrations were within normal for this month. In the Baltic Sea sampling at RefM1V1 had to be cancelled due to military exercise. In general, both cell numbers and species diversity were low on all Baltic stations, except at BY2 where the diatoms Cerataulina pelagica and Last updated:

concentrations in both Skagerrak and Kattegatt were within normal for the season. The phytoplankton community in the Baltic Sea was in general dominated by ciliates, cryptomonads, Pyramimonas spp., Eutreptiella spp. and species from the class Prymnesiales. Aphanizomenon flos-aquae was mostly found in The Gotland Last updated:

This cruise was not a full cruise with phytoplankton sampling at only three west coast stations and three stations in the Baltic Sea. The west coast stations Släggö and Anholt E displayed relatively high biodiversity. The coccolithophore Emiliania huxleyi was found at high cell numbers at both Last updated:

This sampling occasion was not a full cruise with all phytoplankton stations, only one west coast phytoplankton station and six in the Baltic Sea were sampled. The west coast station (Anholt E), displayed an autumn bloom community with several species of dinoflagellates, as well as some diatoms Last updated:

concentrations were very low at almost all stations in The Baltic Sea and the phytoplankton community was dominated by cryptomonads. The diatom spring bloom at Kalmar Sound, Ref.M1V1 was dominated by Skeletonema marinoi. The net sample taken from BY 32 was dominated by the cyanobacterium Aphanizomenon sp.. The Last updated:

The integrated (0-20 meters) chlorophyll a concentrations were normal for the season at all Skagerrak sites. Chlorophyll a concentrations were however above normal in Kattegat at N14 and on the second sampling occasion at Anholt E.

chlorophyll concentrations were high in the surface water, but the integrated (0-10 and 0-30 meters) numbers were normal for January. The phytoplankton community was in its winter rest in the Baltic Sea. Only small cells were present like cryptomonads, pico cyanobacteria colonies and ciliates. The chlorophyll Last updated:
