    This paper describes the usefulness of satellite ocean color remote sensing in the Antarctic Ocean by making a comparison between CZCS chlorophyll images and ship-measured chlorophyll concentrations in the sea area off Enderby Land, Antarctica. In addition, some characteristics of the chlorophyll distribution in the Antarctic Ocean are briefly explained by means of the three-month(January-March) composite images.
