内容 研究概要:A series of ocean color sensors, OCTS on ADEOS and SeaWiFS on OrbView-2, provided images of chlorophyll-a distribution along the Sunda Islands. A limited number of sea surface wind observation by NSCAT on ADEOS showed the important contribution of the sea surface wind to the distribution of chlorophyll-a. The sea surface topography observation by SAR on J-ERS-1 also supported the surface flow from the Lombok strait and contribution of flows to the phytoplankton distribution. From satellite observation, it is confirmed that the irregular wind, which is different from the major monsoon wind, determines the distribution of phytoplankton. The southeast wind in February 1997 regulated the runoff from the Lombok Strait. The phytoplankton bloom was started when the southeast wind has stopped. From in-situ observation in March 1998, the spatial distribution of the phytoplankton bloom was made clear. The surface layer up to 30 m with a lower density around 21.5 kg m^<-3> and slightly higher nitrate around 0.5 uM L^<-1> maintains the phytoplankton bloom along the coast.
