Microplankton biomass in the Benguela Upwelling System sampled during the RV SONNE cruise SO283


Biomass of two size fractions of microplankton were analyzed of samples taken during cruise SO283 in April/May 2021by an Apstein Net (20 µm mesh size). The sampling took place in the northern and southern Benguela upwelling system in the context of the project TRAFFIC (Trophic TRAnsfer eFFICiency in the Benguela Current). TRAFFIC aims to enlighten the energy transfer through the food webs of the northern and southern subsystems of the Benguela upwelling system.
