    Agenda Item(s)

    Aim of this document is to supply a short information of chlorophyll distribution patterns around the South Shetland Islands in the Antarctic survey of R/V the Kaiyo Maru from 13 December 1990 to 11 January 1991 (Leg I) and from 16 January to 11 February 1991 (Leg II). In the north of Livingston Island, high chlorophyll a concentration and low POC/chlorophyll a ratio in Leg II and low chlorophyll a concentration in Leg I suggest that phytoplankton bloom occurred in this area for about one month.
