Description
Data on bacteria abundance and chlorophyll-a concentrations collected in June - August 2001 in Antarctic waters. more

Water sampling for bacteria abundance and chlorophyll-a concentrations were collected in the near surface waters (0-150m) using a CTD niskin rosette sampler during 2 ship cruises to the Antarctic, June-August 2001. The general survey area includes: the continental shelf to the west of the Antarctic Peninsula extending from the northern tip of Adelaide Island to the southern portion of Alexander Island, Marguerite Bay, and seaward to the ~2000 meter contour. Data reported: bacteria abundance, bacteria carbon biomass and chlorophyll-a concentrations. Ships/cruises: RV Lawrence M. Gould / LMG01-04 RV Lawrence M. Gould / LMG01-06
