Description 
Summary

The overall goal of the project was to quantify the importance of natural, meteorologically forced physical processes on the availability of nutrients promoting cyanobacterial blooms and on interactions of cyanobacteria with other planktonic organisms. This information was needed for the evaluation of the impact of anthropogenic nutrient inflow into the Gulf of Finland. The intention was to study the effect of small-scale processes on the aggregation, activity and growth of cyanobacteria. The high-resolution CTD measurements were carried out with the aim to study the role of meso-scale hydrophysical processes on the dynamics of marine ecosystem. The measurement campaign was performed at the entrance area of the Gulf of Finland in 1996 from July 16 to July 26 in 1996. Overall 9 surveys were performed in the study area (about 1754 CTD profiles). The CTD data are quality controlled.
