Short summary
This work objectively classified the northern Arabian Sea into six ecological zones based on surface Chl a distribution patterns during winter. Distinct Chl a characteristics within each delineated zone show that this classification method is a good way of separating regions with different phytoplankton dynamics during winter. The study provides improved understanding of how environmental factors control the spatio-temporal variability of the marine Chl a concentration in the area during winter.
