Exploitable results – A comparative study of long term nutrients and phytoplankton biomass in selected sites of the Mediterranean and Black Seas (Poster)

Result description

The study reveals a decrease of nutrients and phytoplankton biomass in most study areas. These decreasing trends were coupled with those of nutrients except for the Gulf of Trieste, where the decrease of chlorophyll a was related to an increasing salinity trend from 2002 to 2008.
