The North-Eastern Atlantic, including the western part of the European continental shelf, was studied by splitting the region up into 6 biogeographical areas. Biomass (chlorophyll-a concentration) and physical forcings (light, sea surface temperature and wind stress) were extracted from satellite data sources. The analysis included also Continuous Plankton Recorder information on phytoplankton functional groups. The results showed differences in biomass magnitude and phytoplankton group dominance, for the different areas, linked through the physical forcings.
