Biomass of picophytoplankton in the Black Sea in winter 1991, supplement to: Kokurkina, E N; Mikaelyan, A S (1994): Composition and distribution of picophytoplankton in the open area of the Black Sea in winter. Oceanology, 34(1), 60-65

Studies of picophytoplankton were carried out in the open Black Sea from February to April 1991 with concomitant blooming of diatoms. During this period cyanobacteria predominated in picoplankton averaging 98.8% of total picophytoplankton abundance and 95% of total picoplankton biomass. In February number of cells reached 1.5x10**9 per liter in the East Black Sea. Picoplankton biomass decreased during the observation period. From February to March biomass varied from 452 to 4918 mg/m**2 (av. 1632 mg/m**2),...
