Short summary
We describe the seasonal and year-to-year variability of the spatial distribution of the phytoplankton size classes (PSCs) in the Mediterranean Sea using the time series of Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) observations (1998 to 2010). We used a chlorophyll-a-based model to estimate the phytoplankton composition. Our results, based on ocean colour data, confirm the seasonal and inter-annual pattern of the phytoplankton community observed from in situ data and in previous studies.
