Abstract

Climate warming will affect the phytoplankton spring bloom. Experiments conducted at IFM-GEOMAR
indicate, that bloom biomass of phytoplankton will become less, average cell size will
become smaller, the biological carbon pump will be weakened and the timing of the bloom will
be advanced a bit in a warming climate.
