From the abstract of the referenced paper:

In January-February 1991, in Prydz Bay, phytoplankton bloom was evident in the inner shelf area with the dominant diatoms being represented mainly by pennate species of the Nitzschia-Fragilariopsis group. Dinoflagellates and ... View entire text

SHIPS Ancillary Description
Quality Phytoplankton samples and physical-chemical measurements were obtained during an Australian expedition (Marine Science Voyage 6; R/V 'Aurora Australis') to Prydz Bay, Antarctica, in January-February 1991. Seawater was collected from 15 and 60 m depths using 30 litre Niskin samplers. Phytoplankton samples were preserved with glutaraldehyde-Lugol (35%) solution (final concentration 1%) and stored in the dark at 4 degrees C until analysis. Total suspended matter was filtered on pre-combusted (450 degrees C) Whatman GF/F glass fibre filters. After filttration, filters were dried at 50 degrees C and stored dry until analysis.
