Version Date: 

Abundance (estimated number of infecting particles per ml seawater and standard error) of cyanophages infecting laboratory strains of Synechococcus at four southern California and three Rhode Island coastal locations. In California, four Synechococcus hosts were used at one site (Newport Beach), whereas only one host (WH7803) was used the other sites. In Rhode Island, Synechococcus WH7803 was used. Date and time of sampling is recorded, along with various abiotic parameters including salinity, water temperature, pH, air temperature, and nutrients (PO4, SiO4, NO2, NO3+NO2, NH4).
