Daily phytoplankton/chlorophyll concentrations in the Damariscotta River Estuary
Entry ID: darling_phytoplankton_chl_Damariscotta

Abstract: Daily changes in phytoplankton concentration in the Damariscotta River are
monitored off the dock at the Darling Marine Center, Walpole, Maine. A water
sample from the River is taken every day at around 11:15am and analyzed for
chlorophyll concentration using a Turner Designs fluorometer. We have been
able to observe both the spring and fall phytoplankton blooms in the
Damariscotta River. Data provided by Dr. Perry's Optics Lab:
