Phytoplankton data from the PELRAD cruise in the Strait of Dover in July 2017
National Center for Scientific Research (2018). Phytoplankton data from the PELRAD cruise in the Strait of Dover in July 2017

The PELRAD cruise (July 2017, 4th - 6th then 17th - 19th), onboard the RV “Sépia II” (CNRS/INSU), focused on phytoplankton distribution along the eastern English Channel in summer, to be compared spring features. This cruise is the second of a series of three cruises of the implementation of innovative semi-automated techniques for defining an automated observatory of phytoplankton and HABs, Joint Research Action Project #1 (JRAP#1) of the JERICO-NEXT project. Coordinates of these stations were the same as those visited during the PHYCO cruise. more

22 stations were sampled. The following measurements were carried out: CTD, FluoroProbe casts, FRRF casts, CytoSense continuous recording, Chlorophyll a extraction, SPM filtration, Phytoplankton preserved samples, Nutrients.
