Gross and taxon specific counts of micro plankton, estimates of biomass; two cruises to Georges Bank, 1999, GLOBEC.
Entry ID: EN321_325_microplankton_GB

Abstract: 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
