Water mass properties and sea ice history have a significant impact on the vertical distribution of phytoplankton in the Marginal Ice Zone of the northern Barents Sea. A method is suggested to identify the phase and magnitude of the phytoplankton bloom based on satellite observable values of chlorophyll-a, temperature, salinity and sea ice history. For each bloom phase, formulae are provided for calculation of the chlorophyll-a column from satellite-equivalent measurements of chlorophyll-a.
