cyst maps
Maps of the Gulf of Maine reveal the concentration of Alexandrium cysts buried in seafloor sediments, as detected by WHOI-led surveys in the fall of 1997, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. Four of those surveys are shown. The cyst abundance in 2009 is higher than ever observed in these past surveys. Note also that the Alexandrium cyst “seedbed” extends further to the south than was ever observed before.
