Description 
Summary

The aim of the RELANSIN project was to study the influence of abiotic parameters to the microalgal blooms in Romanian Coastal zone. The phytoplankton samples were collected from 21 main stations covering the Romanian Black Sea coast. The samples were treated with a formaldehyde solution of 4% concentration, followed by further processing based on sedimentation method (Morozova-Vodyanitzkaya, 1954; Bodeanu, 1987-1988).
