Three-day composite SeaWiFS image showing chlorophyll concentration for 18-21 June 2001. Higher levels of chlorophyll on the continental shelf reflect enhanced net primary production within the Northeast US Large Marine Ecosystem (LME). Filaments near the shelf break and eddies offshore indicate the complexity of interactions between the LME and the slope sea. (Heidi Sosik, WHOI)
