Lineage

Water samples were taken on-board the Rum Rambler and stored under cool and dark conditions until filtering took place on land. Samples were analysed and QC procedures were carried out in the Ocean Colour Laboratory. Pigment analysis 4 litres of sample water was filtered through a 47 mm glass fibre filter (Whatman GF/F) and then stored in liquid nitrogen until analysis. To extract the pigments, the filters were cut into small pieces and covered with 100% acetone (3 mls) in a 10 ml centrifuge tube.The samples were vortexed for about 30 seconds and then sonicated for 15 minutes in the dark.
