Short summary
This study examines the seasonal patterns of chlorophyll-a (chl-a) blooms in the Bransfield Strait using remote sensing data supported by novel and historical in situ observations. Through satellite data we show that we can identify two distinct phytoplankton niches along a thermal front known as the Peninsula Front: the Transitional Bellingshausen Water and Transitional Weddell Water pools. These findings enable the first climatological description of the chl-a blooms in the Bransfield Strait.
