From the introduction: Since the last progress report and research proposal was submitted to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission we have completed seven cruises on which the primary objectives were the study of the biology, chemistry and radiochemistry of marine plankton populations. As in the past, our program of plankton research has been jointly sponsored by the Atomic Energy Commission, by grants from the National Science Foundation, by contract with the Office of Naval Research and by Institution funds. Of the seven cruises mentioned above, three included a complete hydrographic and zooplankton collecting section of 13 - 15 stations extending from Montauk Point to the vicinity of Bermuda; one occupied the first third of this section extending across the continental shelf to the Gulf Stream, and three were for the purposes of specialized studies.

(Oxford University Press, 2010-06-07)Increasing availability and extent of biological ocean time series (from both in situ and satellite data) have helped reveal significant phenological variability of marine plankton. The extent to which the range of this ...
The distribution, abundance and ecology of mixotrophic algae in marine and freshwater plankton communities Arenovski, Andrea L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-09)Mixotrophic algae are algae that combine photosynthesis with phagotrophy to satisfy nutritional requirements. Mixotrophic algae have been found to dominate the nanoplankton assemblage in some aquatic environments, and ...
Relationship of plankton and marine snow to hydrography and currents on the southwest portion of Georges Bank during June 1997 Du, Qingling (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-06)A key question in biological oceanography is how plankton populations maintain themselves in regions of favorable growth and survival in the face of horizontal transport by ocean currents. Plankton are thought to be ...
