Bacterioplankton abundances during long spring BEST cruises


Samples for analysis of bacterioplankton abundance and relative nucleic acid content were collected at 6 depths in the upper 50m from primary production Conductivity Temperature, Depth (CTD) profiles during the three long spring Bering Sea Ecosystem Study-Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BEST-BSIERP) cruises (HLY0802, HLY0902, and TN249) from March to June in 2008, 2009, and 2010. BEST-BSIERP together are the Bering Sea project. These samples were collected aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Healy (HLY) and the R/V Thompson (TN).
