Short summary
Several operational satellite chlorophyll a (CHL) in the Baltic Sea were tested at a regional scale. Comparison to an extensive in situ CHL dataset showed low linearity. Bias-corrected CHL annual cycles were computed. The Gulf of Bothnia displays a single CHL peak during spring. In Skagerrak and Kattegat, there is a small bloom in spring and a minimum in summer. In the central Baltic, CHL follows a dynamic of a mild spring bloom followed by a much stronger bloom in summer.
