Summary:
This thesis is investigating the spatial and temporal distribution of marine phytoplankton (coccolithophores and silicoflagellates) along a transect of sampling stations in the North Aegean area. The different stations are located in an area affected by the inflow of the Black Sea Water mass (BSW) at surface layer overlying the deeper Levantine Water (LW). The results of the study are compared with results from other parts of the Aegean (Kolumbo submarine volcano area, Antikithira strait and Ionian Sea) which emerge from this and older studies. Another part of the work that was conducted in the area of Kolumbo submarine volcano is investigating the possible effects of the submarine vent field system of the volcano to the coccolithophore assemblages of the area. Finally, our results were discussed as a potential factor for further paleoceanographic studies.
