- Gridded abundance maps of microorganisms from the North Sea
- Abstract in English
- These products are a series of gridded abundance maps of microorganisms in the North Sea from 2007-2008 at four different depth ranges. Micro-organisms are vital for the functioning of marine food webs (considered in MSFD descriptor 4) and are the main drivers of the global biogeochemical cycles. This product was developed with DIVA (Data-Interpolating Variational Analysis). Data was provided by NIOZ (C. Brussaard - Brandsma, J.; Martínez Martínez, J.; Slagter, H.A.; Evans, C.; Brussaard, C.P.D. (2013). Microbial biogeography of the North Sea during summer. Biogeochemistry 113(1-3): 119-136. dx.doi.org/10.1007/s10533-012-9783-3 ).
