Abstract
These data include nutrient, pigment, silica and experimental data collected aboard the OCEANUS during cruise OC1504A in the North Pacific Ocean along the California Coast from 2015-04-19 to 2015-05-06. The water samples were collected by CTDs. Silica production rates were characterized by delivering incremental increases in silicic acid (Si) along with a radioactive isotope of silicon (32Si). This is an extremely sensitive assay and can determine the maximum production rates of the community being studied and the degree that its growth is being limited by lack of Si. These data were collected by Mark Brzezinski from the University of California at Santa Barbara as part of Linking Physiological and Molecular Aspects of Diatom Silicification. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the supplemental document 'Field_names.pdf', and a full dataset description is included in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'. The most current version of this dataset is available at: http://www.bco-dmo.org/dataset/650831
