Short summary
The present manuscript provides an analysis of the interannual variability of the phytoplankton seasonality in the Mediterranean Sea, based on 16 years of ocean color data. Important interannual variabilities at regional scale were highlighted and related to environmental factors. Our results demonstrate also that seasonal patterns retrieved from satellite allow to identify the evolution of an oceanic area and to summarize the huge quantity of information that the satellite data offer.
