Identity, composition and abundance of protists - data collected from the BROKE-West voyage of the Aurora Australis, 2006
Entry ID: BROKE-West_Protists

Abstract: The BROKE-West survey was conducted from 30 degrees E and 80 degrees E between January and March 2006. It consisted of 1 east-west transect at the northernmost limit of the survey between 60 degrees S and 62 degrees S between the 10 and 19 of January, followed by 11 meridional transects separated by 5 degrees of longitude and extending from approximately 62 degrees S to the Antarctic continental ...

Quality Sea water samples for determining the identity, composition and abundance of protists were obtained using 20 l Niskin bottles (General Oceanics) mounted on a CTD rosette at 30 sites in surface waters (3-12 m depth) and 26 sites at the Chl max (11-80 m) over a total of 34 locations during the BROKE-West survey. Samples were preserved with 1% vol:vol Lugol's iodine and stored in glass bottles, in ... View entire text
