A mechanism for onset of diatom blooms in a fjord with persistent salinity stratification



A mechanism for onset of diatom blooms in a fjord with persistent salinity stratification



Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science 64(2/3): 546-560



We demonstrate that episodic high freshwater influx from the Manapouri hydroelectric power station and storms promote diatom blooms (15 mg chlorophyll m-3) during spring, summer and autumn in Doubtful Sound, New Zealand, a fjord with semi-permanent salinity stratification.
