TN249-10, TN250-10 Chlorophyll and Primary Production 2010



These data were collected from process stations and other stations where the Phytoplankton Ecology Lab of BIOS collected bulk chlorophyll (Chl) measurements on the following Bering Sea Ecosystem Study-Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BEST-BSIERP) cruises: TN249 and TN250. Data presented are total and >5um Chla, and total and >5um primary production. All samples were collected on the eastern Bering Sea shelf from 55-63oN and 164-180oW during spring and summer. At process stations, seven (7) depths were sampled representing roughly the 100%, 55%, 30%, 17%, 9%, 5% and 1.5% light depths. At other stations, generally four (4) depths were sampled and were chosen as surface, deep chlorophyll maximum, and two other depths selected based upon equal distributions throughout the water column or profile features (e.g., elevated concentrations near the bottom). The data were collected from 11 May 2010 through 12 July 2010.

BEST-BSIERP together are the Bering Sea project.
