AB - In our previous work we have defined the notion of characteristic classes of surface bundles, which are differentiable fibre bundles whose fibres are closed oriented surfaces. In this paper we derive new relations between these characteristic classes by considering a canonical embedding of a given surface bundle with cross section to its associated family of Jacobian manifolds. As a key technical step we determine the first cohomology group of the mapping class group of oriented surfaces with coefficients in the homology of the surface. This might have an independent meaning.
