Index of plankton data files

Index of LTER lakes plankton data files

Plankton:

Microplankton and zooplankton data in each file consists of either zooplankton or microplankton densities for all lakes sampled in a given year. Pico plankton data consists of water column profiles of bacterial counts for all lakes sampled. Files with ob as the third and fourth letters of the file name contain zooplankton for all lakes sampled that year. Files with ru as the third and fourth letters of the file name contain microplankton for all lakes sampled that year. Files with ho as the third and fourth letters of the file name contain picoplankton for all lakes sampled that year.
