Particulate Matter in Water Column

*DATASET-NAME : Biogenic suspended matter characterisation in the water column, in Southern Adriatic, Otranto Strait Sea and Ionian Sea.

*TIME-PERIOD : 1997 to present

*GEOGRAPHIC COVERAGE : Southern Adriatic Sea, Northern Ionian Sea

*PROJECT : MASTIII/MTPII/MATER, MAss Transfer and Ecosystem Response

*PARAMETERS : Total Suspended Matter (TSM), Particulate Organic Carbon (POC), Particulate Total Nitrogen (PTN) in water column at standard or selected depths. Pigments (Chlorophyll a and Phaeopigments) concentration at standard or selected depths in the photic layer of the water column.

*INSTRUMENTS : POC and PN were determined by a Perkin-Elmer CHN 2400 Elemental Analyser. Chlorophyll a and phaeopigment samples were analysed with a Perkin-Elmer LS-5B luminescence spectrometer.

*SUMMARY : Data were collected within the framework of multidisciplinary studies aimed at investigating the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the Adriatic/Ionian basin.

In chosen stations, samples from the water column were collected from Niskin bottles at standard or selected depth; samples for TSM, POC, PTN and Pigments were filtered with glass fiber filters and stored at -20 C.
