Biological data on water samples used to initiate bioassay experimentsa

a Abbreviations (and units): S = surface water sample, D = deeper subsurface sample, Chl a = Chlorophyll a (µg L−1), POC = particulate organic carbon (µg L−1), POC/Chl a (wt/wt), PON = particulate organic nitrogen, POC/PON (mol/mol), Fv/Fm = maximum photochemical efficiency of photosystem II (no units), σPSII = functional absorption cross section (Å photon−1), P*max = maximum rate of photosynthesis (g C g−1 Chl a h−1), α* the initial slope of the photosynthesis versus irradiance curve (g C g−1 Chl a h−1 [µmol photons m−2 s−1]−1), Ek= photoacclimation parameter (µmol photons m−2 s−1), ā* = spectrally averaged Chl a-specific optical absorption cross section (photons m−2), Φm = quantum yield of photosynthesis (mol C mol−1 photons), BP = bacterial productivity (pmol Leu uptake L−1 h−1).
