Pigments measured on MUC samples during SONNE cruises SO268/1 and SO268/2 to the BGR and GSR license areas in the Clarion Clipperton Fracture Zone


This dataset contains sedimentary parameters pigments (Chlorophyll a, Pheophorbide, Pheophytin) measured from Multicorer (MUC) samples from the Bundesanstalt für Geowissenschaften und Rohstoffe (BGR, Germany) and Global Sea Mineral Resources (GSR, Belgium) license areas in the Clarion Clipperton Fracture Zone collected on onboard the RV Sonne during expeditions SO268 (Leg1 and Leg2) in 2019. Values are given in their respective units (SI) and have been collected and measured by the Marine Biology Research Group of Ghent University (Belgium).

Sediments were analyzed according to Van Heukelem and Thomas (2001). After addition of 90% aceton, samples (+/- 1 g) were sonicated and extracted overnight at 4°C. After filtration, the extract was injected onto a Agilent HPLC with fluorescence detector (Type 1200 Infinity II, Agilent Technologies, Diegem, Belgium) and an Eclipse XDB C8 column.
