Description
Dataset includes phytoplankton data collected during Second Ukrainian Antarctic Expedition (March-April 1998) on board of R/V Krenkel in the regions of South Orkney Islands, Drake Passage, Elephant Island and region of Ukrainian Antarctic Station. more

Expedition was organized by Ukrainian Antarctic Research Center. Samples were taken by 7 L Niskin bathometer at standard depths: 0, 20, 25, 50, 75, 100 and 150m. Samples were concentrated by reverse filtration through nucleoporous (nuclear) filters with 1 µm size pores. Fixation - 40% Formalgedid or Glutar. Cell counts were done with a light microscope (magnification 100, 200, 400 x). In addition samples were taken by 7 L Niskin bathometer from depths where irradiance level = 100, 46, 25, 10 and 1% and were processed without concentration in drop 0.1-0.5 ml (1-3 replications). Individual biovolumes and biomass (wet weight) were calculated via geometric approximations. At IBSS, the data were digitized from paper processing books, quality-controlled and transformed to comply with the Darwin Core/OBIS Schema. Funds for data operations were kindly provided by the Census of Marine Life International Cosmos Prize Fund, through a grant to Rutgers University.
