OSD ‐ Summer solstice 2013‐06‐21 at Faxaflói, Iceland – Matis

Sampling was performed for the third time in Faxaflói, a bay in Southwest-Iceland between the peninsulas of Reykjanes and Snæfellsnes. A small boat was used to go to the OSD sampling station (Lat: 64° 12,50’ N, Long: 22° 00,90’ V). We collected three replicate samples from the sampling station from a depth of 0.2 meter using acid cleaned bucket. The sampling was at 12:04 o´clock on the summer solstice 2012‐13‐21 and the weather was exceptionally good. The water samples (1 L) were filtrated (after 1 hour) through four 0.22 μm Sterivex filters (Millipore). Filtering time was around 30 min. Filters were sealed and immediately frozen at ‐80 °C in individual plastic tubes.
