By Morgan Ostendorf, University of Washington, on the vessel Oscar Dyson

Just north of Cross Sound we encountered a spring bloom with higher concentrations of chlorophyll than anything we saw in 2011. This is good news because one of the goals of this cruise is to investigate the spring bloom. In 2011 we never observed a spring bloom during the May cruise or in the satellite data collected later in the season.
