Data Records

The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 363 records. 1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

  • Occurrence (core)
    363
  • MeasurementOrFact 
    726

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Project Data

No Description available

Title SESAME
Funding SESAME is a integrated project supported by the European Commission
Study Area Description Adriatic Sea

The personnel involved in the project:

Principal Investigator
Paola Del Negro

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. Heterotrophic cell abundance is determined after steaning with DAPI according to the method described by Porter and Feig (1980). Autotrophic cell abundance is determined according to Waterbury et al., 1979, by photosynthetic pigment autofluorescence.
