Sampling Methods

Discrete water samples at 3 to 5 depth layers. 2 liters were collected at each sampling depth.

Study Extent Monthly sampling from 1998 to 2005.

Method step description:

  1. Samples were fixed with Ca(HCO3)2-buffered formaldehyde (4% final concentration) and cell abundance and species composition of phytoplankton were estimated according to Utermöhl’s method (1958), using an inverted microscope equipped with phase contrast, at 200-320-400x final magnifications.
