Description

Biogeochemistry and microbiology measurements in the Cariaco Basin. Microbiology sampling is conducted during special CARIACO cruises (distinct from the monthly, core sampling, time-series cruises). The specialized microbiology cruises are usually during May and November, and can be opportunistic or process-driven. There are typically at least 2 cruises per year, during which different variables are sampled and at different depths from the standard monthly CARIACO cruises. Bacteria production data are also reported for the microbiology cruises.
