Physical, chemical, and biological water column (upper 100 m) characteristics of Kongsfjorden (Spitsbergen) were measured from April to June 2014 at 3 stations. Profiles of temperature, salinity, irradiance chlorophyll fluorescence and turbidity were obtained by CTD. Nuntrient concentrations (phosphate, nitrate, ammonium, and silicate) and phytoplankton characteristics were measured in samples obtained by Niskin bottle. Phytoplankton pigments were determined by HPLC. Phytoplankton composition was calculated from marker pigments using CHEMTAX.
