Description

These data are not yet available because they are part of a graduate thesis.  Please contact the PI for further information.

These data show cellular characterizations of two strains of Emiliania huxleyi cultured semi-continuously over a period 13-14 days under three different pCO2 concentrations (400 ppmv, 750 ppmv, and 1000 ppmv). Cellular characterization measurements were taken throughout the course of the experiments, resulting in a time course data set.  CO2 chemistry was also monitored over the course of the experiment. Cellular characterizations included here:cellular particulate organic carbon and nitrogen, cellular particulate inorganic carbon.

Emiliania huxleyi strains:
Strain NCMA 2668, calcifying phenotype, isolated from Gulf of Maine 2002
Strain NCMA 374, non-calcifying phenotype, isolated from Gulf of Maine 1990
