These methods, instrumentation and/or protocols apply to Data Table: SBC LTER cross-shelf study, 2008, 5m phytoplankton counts

Protocols and/or Procedures
Description:

Phytoplankton counts

Samples from 5 m depth at each station were analyzed for phytoplankton taxa under an inverted light microscope using the Utermöhl method (Utermöhl, 1931, 1958). At each station 125 mL bottles were filled with seawater and 37% formaldehyde was added to a final concentration of 2%. The preserved samples were settled using 50 mL settling columns for ~24 hours, and phytoplankton taxa were identified to genus and enumerated using a Leitz Wetzlar Diavert inverted microscope at 350 x magnification. A total of ~500 cells were counted for each sample.
