Abstract/Description

The objective of this study is to determine how major precipitation events affect the chlorophyll concentrations of the surface waters off the East Coast. High amounts of rainfall may wash excess nutrients off land into the Coastal waters. The increase in nutrient levels in the surface water produces an increase in the number of phytoplankton, sometimes resulting in bloom events.
