This dataset contains size fractionated rates of 14C-bicarbonate assimilation and the “group-specific” rates of 14C-bicarbonate assimilation.  The group-specific rates were derived from flow cytometrically sorting radiolabeled cells (post-incubation) including Prochlorococcus, Synechococcus, and photosynthetic picoeukaryotes.

These results were published in the following publication:

Rii YM, Karl DM, Church MJ (2016) Temporal and vertical variability in picophytoplankton primary productivity in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. Mar Ecol Prog Ser 562:1-18.
