Giovanni - Chlorophyll in Gulf of Panama
Graph: Chlorophyll in the Gulf of Panama - Giovanni created this latitude versus time graph for the Gulf of Panama. The seasonal pattern of higher chlorophyll concentrations and more plankton in winter is shown clearly. In the winter of 1997-1998, the strong El Niño event reduced phytoplankton productivity in the Gulf of Panama. In the summer of 2001, before the developing El Niño, an unusually higher concentration of chlorophyll was observed. Credit: NASA
