Organic matter and gel particles of Maria S. Merian cruise MSM85


The discrete biogeochemical measurements from RV Maria S. Merian MSM85 sampled for dissolved organic matter, microbial cell abundances and gel particles. The parameters include POC/PON, DOC/TDN, microbial cell abundances, gel particle concentrations like TEP and CSP. The samples were aquired within 5-2700 m of the Greenland Sea between 61 N to 77 N and 40 W to 4 W. The data was collected on board MSM85 from 27th July 2018-11th August 2019. The water collection occured using a CTD and laboratory methods varied by parameter. POC/PON was analysed using CHNS-O Elemental Analyser, DOC/TDN was analysed using TOC-VCSH, cell abundance (phytoplankton, bacteria, viral) was analysed using flow cytometery, gel particles were analysed colorimetrically using a spectrophotometer. The purpose of data collection was to understand spatial variability of organic mater and associated dynamics of the microbial loop.
