No Data Value: 
Growth rate per day. Chlorophyll a samples were collected at T-initial and T-final and used for determination of growth rates. The following equation was used to calculate specific growth rates: growth rate = ln(Tfinal-Tinitial)/2 (where Tfinal and Tinitial are the chlorophyll a samples collected at their respective times, and 2 is the number of days between sampling). Null values indicate data point is missing as there was an issue during data collection or processing.
