This chapter focuses on the responses of phytoplankton as an indicator species of climate variation and change in Narragansett Bay, located in the northwest Atlantic, and in the North Sea and neighbouring regions of the northeast Atlantic. Narragansett Bay is selected because of the availability of a 38-year (1959-96) quantitative time series of phytoplankton and habitat based on weekly measurements. The seemingly increasing problem of harmful algal blooms and their possible link to climate variability and change are discussed.

Keywords:   climate change, climate variability, pelagic environments, Narragansett Bay, algal blooms, northwest Atlantic, North Atlantic, North Sea, Celtic Sea, Skagerrak
