|Data set name|
BENBO Microbial biomass and exo-enzymatic activity 1997-1998
|Data holding centre||Plymouth Marine Laboratory|
North East Atlantic
Bacteria taxonomy-related biomass expressed as carbon per unit volume of the water column; Bacteria taxonomic abundance in water bodies; Bacteria taxonomy-related ash-free dry weight biomass in sediment; Bacteria non taxonomy-related biomass expressed as carbon per unit volume of the water column; Bacteria generic abundance in water bodies; Bacteria generic abundance in sediment; Bacteria non taxonomy-related biomass expressed as protein per unit volume of the water column; Bacterial growth; Bacterial consumption in the water column; Temperature of the water column; Bacterial production in the water column; Bacteria taxonomic abundance in sediment
Data are from three BENBO cruises - before and after the flux of spring bloom material to the benthic boundary layer.
