Subthermocline chlorophyll maxima in the South China Sea, Area III (Western Philippines)
The subsurface chlorophyll maxima from 31 sampling stations in the South China Sea off Western Philippines were investigated. The extremely low concentration of chlorophyll ranged 0.001-0.104 µg/l were observed. These values were thought to be a result of serious problem of samples storage for too long at -20°C. Shipboard analysis or improved storage strategy should be considered.
