Phytoplankton data from the Etoile cruise in the Bay of Biscay in July - August 2017
National Center for Scientific Research (2018). Phytoplankton data from the Etoile cruise in the Bay of Biscay in July - August 2017.

The Etoile cruise was firstly designed to understand hydrological dynamics in the Bay of Biscay. Besides, a physical-biological coupling was effective (JERICO-Next JRAP#1 and JRAP#4) by including phytoplankton monitoring in surface and at some water column depths. One of the objectives of the cruise was to characterize phytoplankton distribution at meso/sub-meso-scale using automated flow cytometer and multispectral fluorometry. These measurements should be complementary to discrete sample at three depths (surface, sub-surface and chlorophyll maximum). more

Following deployments were done: Mastodon-2D moorings (IFREMER), ADCP moorings (IFREMER, SHOM), CTD casts (IFREMER or AZTI), Pairovet nets (AZTI), Neuston nets (AZTI), Drifting buoy (AZTI), CytoSense continuous recording (CNRS-LOG), FluoroProbe continuous recording (CNRS-LOG), Fluoroprobe casts (CNRS-LOG).
