Upper ocean biogeochemistry

Molecular and microbiology data management
Lead Scientist: Chris Scholin and Ed DeLong
Lead Engineer/Project Manager: Rich Schramm

One of the primary goals of the molecular and microbiology research group has been to develop and determine the effectiveness of new methods for the detection and quantification of toxic and non-toxic phytoplankton and bacterioplankton species. In this project we have planned to accelerate the development of the data management tools needed to more efficiently process, track and ultimately interpret their sample results.

Our goal is to improve the efficiency of the routine sample analysis operations being performed and to greatly improve the access to the various data elements associated with each sample through a combination of custom programs and real-time extensions to a commercial geographic information systems software package.
