Abstract/Summary

Using satellite maps this paper offers a complex analysis of chlorophyll & SST heterogeneity in the shelf seas around the southwest of the UK. The heterogeneity scaling follows a simple power law and is consequently pa- rametrized by two parameters. It is shown that in most cases these two parameters vary only relatively little with time. The paper offers a detailed comparison of field heterogeneity between different regions. How much hetero- geneity is in each region preserved in the annual median data is also determined. The paper explicitly demon- strates how one can use these results to calculate representative measurement area for in situ networks.
