Water samples collected with a CTD rosette were screened using Epifluorescence Microscopy and Flow Cytometry for estimating the abundance of micro planktonic forms. Depending on the analytical technique use abundance values are either gross or taxon specific counts. Estimates of carbon biomass are also calculated. The sampling was conducted on two cruises of the R/V Endeavor to the George Bank region in 1999 as part of the GLOBEC Georges Bank Project. The data are reported in four files as identified in the Related_URL below.
R/V Endeavor 321 Mar 28 to April 11, 1999 R/V Endeavor 325 Jun 13 to Jun 30, 1999
