Project Data

No Description available

Title PRISMA-1 Flussi
Funding Italian Ministery of University, Education and Research.
Study Area Description Pelagic waters of the South Adriatic Sea
Design Description Oceanographic cruises; vertical sampling with Niskin bottles at discrete depths.

The personnel involved in the project:

Principal Investigator
Marina Monti

Sampling Methods

Sampling at discrete water depths with Niskin bottles deployed with a CTD profiler.

Study Extent Seasonal cruises were carried out in the South Adriatic.
Quality Control Worms taxon match

Method step description:

  1. Samples were fixed with Ca(HCO3)2-buffered formaldehyde (4% final concentration) and cell abundance and species composition of phytoplankton were estimated according to Utermöhl’s method (1958), using an inverted microscope equipped with phase contrast, at 200-320-400x final magnifications.
