Organic matter and phytoplankton measurements of POLARSTERN cruise PS114


The discrete biogeochemical measurements from RV Polarstern PS114 sampled for organic matter, primary production and phytoplankton abundances. The parameters include POC, phytoplankton abundances and production. The samples were acquired within 0-100 m of the Greenland Sea between 78°N to 80°N and 3°E to 10°E. The data was collected daily on board PS114 from 16th July 2018-23rd July 2018 . The water collection occurred using a CTD and laboratory methods varied by parameter. POC was analyzed using a EURO EA CHNS-O Elemental Analyzer, carbohydrates were analyzed using High performance anion exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection, amino acids were analyzed using High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) ortho-phthaldialdehyde derivatization, rates of primary production (PP) were measured in situ using the 14C method and subsampled as total PP (PP-TOC), particulate PP (PP-POC), and dissolved PP (PP-DOC), cell abundances were measured using orange and red autofluorescence detected by flow cytometry. The purpose of data collection was to understand seasonal cycling of organic mater.
