Abstract

A comparative analysis of the Black Sea surface temperature and chlorophyll-a concentration was based on the satellite data (PODAAC JPL AVHRR Pathfinder and SeaWiFS) for 1998-2005. The fields of dispersion and spatial gradient were analysed as well. On the interannual scale, no statistical relationship was found between the field of sea surface temperature and chlorophyll-a. The mesoscale variability (which masked the statistical assessments of interannual coupling) was well pronounced in the fields of both parameters. For the deep part of the sea, a sign of the wave-type origin of the variability of chlorophyll-a and sea surface temperature was evaluated.
