BIOSOPE – macro-particles 1- Scientific objectives. We are proposing two projects : A - Estimation of the stock of particulate matter (PM) > 100 µm in the studied water column and the relationship between PM’s spatial pattern and the bio-physical data.

BIOSOPE – macro-particles
1- Scientific objectives
We are proposing two projects:
A- Estimation of the stock of particulate matter (PM) > 100 µm in the studied water column and the relationship between PM’s spatial pattern and the bio-physical data.
B- Estimation of the distribution and of the diversity of meso- and macrozooplankton. Relation between their size-dependent distribution and ecosystem state. NET SAMPLING.
Easy 3 steps dataacquisition
2) Digitize and analyze thepicture in one mouse click
3) Collect the sampleback without lostor degradation
1) Pour and distributethe sample in the cell
20% of the whole image
Each picture is 17,500 x 7,000 pixels and contains hundreds of animals
Size distribution (or temporal evolution) of the different
faunistical groups determined by the ZOOSCAN
3- Sampling needs
Dig-UVP will be mounted on the CTD (hopefully)
we need a dry lab place for a large desktop
computer, printer and a laptop computer
Zooplankton net sampling – according to the schedule
we need a storage place for the fixed samples
preservative = buffered formaldehyde
Zooscan/OPC – the treatments will be carried out in France
