This data set consists of results from vertical sampling for Chlorophyll a, phaeopigments, and particulate carbon and nitrogen from waters west of the Antarctic Peninsula (Nov.-Dec. 2004 and Feb.-March 2006) on two cruises of the R/V Gould (LMG04-14 and LMG06-02).
These measurements of pigment and particulate carbon/nitrogen were made as ancillary measurements for a study of the pelagic tunicate Salpa thompsoni in the waters west of the northern Antarctic Peninsula. Although standard protocols were followed along with appropriate controls, blanks and standards, these types of measurements are not the primary expertise of the scientists generating the data. Nevertheless, the data have been carefully checked for internal consistency and seem reasonable. A part of the data have been used in a publication: B. Phillips, P. Kremer, L. Madin. 2009. Defecation by Salpa thompsoni and its contribution to vertical flux in the Southern Ocean. Marine Biology 156:455-467.
Any person making substantial use of a data set must communicate with the investigators who acquired the data prior to publication and anticipate that the data collectors will be co-authors of published results. This extends to model results and to data organized for retrospective studies.
