Abstract: Phytoplankton distribution changes in the Ariake Sea areas, Japan based on remote sensing satellite data is studied. Through experiments with Terra and AQUA MODIS data derived chlorophyll-a concentration and suspended solid as well as truth data of chlorophyll-a concentration together with meteorological data and tidal data which are acquired 7 months from October 2012 to April 2013, it is found that strong correlation between the truth data of chlorophyll-a and MODIS derived chlorophyll-a concentrations with R square value ranges from 0.677 to 0.791. Also it is found that the relations between ocean wind speed and chlorophyll-a concentration as well as between tidal effects and chlorophyll-a concentration. Meanwhile, there is a relatively high correlation between sunshine duration a day and chlorophyll-a concentration.
