Abstract
These data include element quotas of individual Synechococcus cells collected during Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study (BATS) cruises. The three cruises (AE1218,AE1228, and AE1322) were all aboard the R/V Atlantic Explorer between dates 2012-07-11 and 2013-10-13 around Bermuda. Instruments used were a CTD profiler, and a Synchrotron X-ray Fluorescence Microprobe (SXRF). Understanding the accumulation of silicon by marine picocyanobacteria of the genus Synechococcus has the potential to drive a major paradigm shift in our understanding of biogenic silica cycling in the ocean. These data assess the contribution of Synechococcus to total biogenic silica and were collected by Dr. Benjamin Twining of the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences as part of the project Understanding the Role of Picocyanobacteria in the Marine Silicate Cycle. 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'.
