Short summary
The Kerguelen Plateau supports a strong spring chlorophyll bloom, in contrast with most of the Southern Ocean. Throughout the Southern Ocean, including in the Kerguelen area, wind can determine oceanic vertical velocities that may bring nutrients to the surface and contribute to the development of blooms. The Kerguelen Island itself generates a wind shadow that locally enhances upwelling velocities to the north of the main axis of the winds, and chlorophyll is high in this upwelling region.
