Our primary objective is to understand the long-term changes in primary productivity and how it relates to fisheries production and ecosystem based management in the northeast US, continental shelf Large Marine Ecosystem (NESLME). The NESLME is a dynamic, highly productive, and intensively studied ecosystem supporting a constellation of ecosystem goods and services. This work is being conducted using time series of in situ, modeled, and satellite derived biological and physical data. Opportunities are available for developing algorithms, techniques, and indices to monitor the phytoplankton community, and to investigate how changes in the climate and physical forcings affect primary production. These analyses will help provide a more holistic perspective in the development of an ecosystem approach to management for the NESLME.
