Biological, chemical, and physical data from the Phytoplankton Monitoring Network from 2001-09-13 to 2013-03-07 (NCEI Accession 0117942)

The Phytoplankton Monitoring Network (PMN) is a part of the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS). The PMN was created as an outreach program to connect volunteers and professional scientists in the monitoring of marine phytoplankton and harmful algal blooms (HABs). NOAA staff train volunteers on sampling techniques and identification methods for marine phytoplankton. There are over 50 genera, including 10 potentially toxin producing genera, of dinoflagellates and diatoms on the volunteers watch list.

A qualitative collection of data that includes salinity, temperature, depth, wind speed and direction, phytoplankton counts and abundance ratios obtained from surface tows in the estuarine and marine environments.
