* The geospatial subset of all satellite (month-by-year chlorophyll) data falling within the boundaries of this region were spatially averaged into a single-stream month-by-year time series.
* That stream was then run through the standard "Mackas" analysis (outlined O'Brien et al. 2013) to create annual anomalies of chlorophyll.
* The linear regression over the entire period of record was also calculated.

* The annual anomalies were plotted as vertical bars crossing at the zero-value Y-axis. Values below average were colored blue, and values above average were colored green. *A black line was drawn on top of these bars to show the trend (increasing or decreasing) derived from the linear regression. * The 1998-2019 average value was added to the chart, along with a numbered label indicating which region was analyzed.
