July 13, 2015 - ESP Update

Hi mates,
Just wanted to let you know that ESP-3 (jake) detected a large spike in
the /A. fundyense/ population over the weekend after the weekly message
was sent to the northeastpsp list on Friday morning. Please see the
updated weekend results at:
Quantification of the spike required a short exposure time to measure
the NA1 spot intensity on the hab array along with a complementary set
of standards for the short exposure times. With that adjustment, the
value from Friday's array was estimated to be about 2400 cells/Liter, in
general agreement with the maximum live counts observed in the region
last week. Note that the ESP estimate for Friday is displayed on the
time series plot as offscale (>1000 cells/L). Since Saturday and today's
(Monday) spot intensities were much lower, the plot will remain as is
and the scale will not change.
Of course, if ESPjake continues to detect populations that are "off the
chart", then we will adjust the plot accordingly.
Stay tuned,
