Observations 
Parameters

Carbon concentrations in suspended particulate material; Phytoplankton generic biomass in water bodies; Chlorophyll pigment concentrations in water bodies; Zooplankton gut pigments; Zooplankton dry weight biomass per unit volume of the water column; Zooplankton carbon biomass per unit area of the water column; Zooplankton taxonomy-related abundance per unit volume of the water column

Description 
Summary

Phyto- and zooplankton collected at different depths (3 to 10) to build time series: every 4 hours, every day, every month. Some series (spring to autumn) very often, with biomasses and ingestion of zooplankton.
