Palmer LTER: Photoadaptation in a coastal phytoplankton bloom and impact on the radiation utilization efficiency for carbon fixation. Schofield, O. M.; Prezelin, B. B.; and Moline, M. A. Antarctic Journal of the United States, 1994.
abstract   bibtex   
The occurrence and demise of most phytoplankton blooms show a strong coherence with sea-water density fields; increasing biomass concentrations are associated with shallow mixing depths. This relationship supports the view that phytoplankton require a stable light environment, which allows the phytoplankton sufficient time to photoacclimate and overcome light-limitation of growth (Mitchell et al. 1991). Characterizing photoacclimation within a planktonic population over time has been difficult to document, however. As part of the Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program, the temporal dynamics of a phytoplankton bloom were documented near Palmer Station (64 deg. 40 S, 64 deg 03 W) during the austral summer months of 1991-1992. The ability to follow the formation of this bloom over time can provide insight into the photoadaptational capabilities of the phytoplankton and the corresponding impact on water column optical properties.
