Short summary
The north Ionian circulation, which is characterized by a decadal alternation of cyclonic and anticyclonic regime, affects phytoplankton dynamics and surface chlorophyll a. From satellite ocean color data, the cyclonic and anticyclonic regimes are compared and two chlorophyll a dynamics are observed: when circulation is anticyclonic, bloom initiation is in December and chlorophyll is low in March, whereas during the cyclonic regime, a late chlorophyll peak is commonly observed in March.
