Satellite observation of chlorophyll and nutrients increase induced by Typhoon Megi in the Japan/East Sea

Abstract:

Remotely-sensed sea surface temperature (SST) and chlorophyll data were used to assess the biological response to the Typhoon Megi in the Japan/ East Sea (JES). Mean SST from in situ measurements and satellite data decreased by about 2-4°C in the JES after Typhoon Megi. Mean concentration of MODIS chlorophyll in the post-typhoon period increased by about 70% along the typhoon passage. The cold, nutrient-rich waters entrained into the surface layer lead to an enhancement of phytoplankton growt...
