Sampling Methods

Sampling along the water column was performed with Niskin bottles associated to a CTD profiler. At each station, several discrete depths were sampled, according to station depth and hydrological vertical profiles.

Study Extent 2 oceanographic surveys were carried out in 2008 along a North South section in the Adriatic Sea. The first in February and the second in October 2008.

Method step description:

  1. Samples were fixed with Ca(HCO3)2-buffered formaldehyde (0.8% 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.
