ECOHAB: Tester_P - Gulf of Mexico Chlorophyll from 1999-01-24 to 1999-01-26 (NODC Accession 0000537)

Chlorophyll a is a standard measure for phytoplankton biomass. Routinely, samples for extracted chlorophyll a values are filtered at sea, stored in liquid nitrogen, transported on dry ice and kept at -80 degrees Celsius until extracted. These values are used to examine the relationship between Karenia brevis cell counts, water column toxin levels and chlorophyll a pigment content.

Supplemental Information
ECOHAB (ECology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms) is a scientific program designed to increase understanding of the fundamental processes underlying the impacts and population dynamics of HABs. This program addresses the many factors at organismal, population, community, and ecosystem levels that determine how HAB species respond to, and potentially alter their environment, the manner in which HAB species affect food-web and community interactions. The program is based on the results of a workshop co-sponsored by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and National Science Foundation (NSF) and currently receives funding from several federal partners including NOAA, NSF, the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
