Short summary
Coccolithophore Emiliania huxleyi (Haptophyta) strains collected from the subarctic North Pacific and Arctic oceans during the R/V MIRAI cruise in 2010 (MR10-05) were established as clone cultures. This is the first report of a detailed morphometric and morphological investigation of Arctic Ocean coccolithophore strains. Taken together, our results suggest that calcification productivity can be used to predict future oceanic environmental conditions in the polar regions.
