Seawater carbonate chemistry and particulate organic particles during an incubation experiments with natural phytoplankton community, 2002, supplement to: Engel, Anja (2002): Direct relationship between CO2 uptake and transparent exopolymer particles production in natural phytoplankton. Journal of Plankton Research, 24(1), 49-53


Incubation experiments with natural phytoplankton revealed a relationship between CO2 concentration and the production of transparent exopolymer particles (TEP), with TEP production being linearly related to theoretical CO2 uptake rates. The effect of different CO2 concentrations on TEP production was examined during incubation experiments with natural phytoplankton sampled at two different locations in the central Baltic Sea in summer 1999.

In order to allow full comparability with other ocean acidification data sets, the R package seacarb (Lavigne and Gattuso, 2011) was used to compute a complete and consistent set of carbonate system variables, as described by Nisumaa et al. (2010). In this dataset the original values were archived in addition with the recalculated parameters (see related PI).
