GLOBAL DATABASE

The Global Database of Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus contains ocean samples of both of these lineages. Samples consist on flow cytometry cell counts and its associated ancillary information, such as the geographical location and date, and as nutrient and temperature. Records have also associated nutrients and temperature from the World Ocean Atlas, and photosynthetically active radiation obtained from SeaWiFS satellites.

Please contact  Pedro Flombaum to obtain the dataset.  pflombaum@cima.fcen.uba.ar

To find a list of available cruises and time series in the database, check Table S1 and the geographical distribution of samples on Fig 1A both on Flombaum et al 2013
