Results of a laboratory experiment examining cellular growth of the WH0003 isolate of Crocosphaera watsonii in response to different levels of phosphate, light, and pCO2. WH0003 was isolated near Sta. ALOHA (A Long Term Oligotrophic Habitat Assessment) in the North Pacific Ocean near Hawaii (22 deg 45' N, 158 deg 00' W).

Detailed methods and results are described in the following publication (see Figure 2):
