Samples of seawater were collected from the upper watercolumn at the RaTS site and examined to assess bromocarbon production by different microalgal species and how this production varies with changing environmental conditions. The field report (see reference) supplies dates on which the samples were collected and the incubations were started, and the depths incubated.

|Lineage:||From samples collected, single microalgal cells were isolated using a micro- or capillary pipette, washed in sterile seawater medium and placed in well-plates in an incubator to encourage cellular division and growth. In total, over 100 single cells were isolated and were returned to UEA to be used in laboratory experiments designed to assess bromocarbon production by different microalgal species and how this production varies with changing environmental conditions.|
|Detailed Location||Adelaide Island, Ryder Bay, Marguerite Bay|
|Data Collection:||See field report|
|Data Storage:||These data are managed by Dr Claire Hughes at York University.
Some of the algal cultures have also been submitted to CCAP, although the management of these particular cultures might not constitute a long-term arrangement.
|Access Constraints:||These data are governed by the NERC data policy|
