|Issue Date:||1-Oct-2002||Citation:||Nayar, S.,Goh, B.P.L.,Chou, L.M. (2002-10-01). A portable, low-cost, multipurpose, surface-subsurface plankton sampler. Journal of Plankton Research 24 (10) : 1097-1105. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||This note describes a portable, low-cost, pump-based, multi-purpose, surface-subsurface, phytoplankton and zooplankton sampler. It is self-powered by a small 12 V DC battery, and is portable and ideal for use from a small boat in a river, estuary, or sea. The sampler is equipped with a very sensitive microprocessor-controlled flow sensor for precise determination of the volume of water processed by the sampler. A study was carried out to evaluate the performance of this sampler in comparison to the conventional towed plankton net. The results of this study suggest that this pump-based sampler is as efficient in collecting plankton as using conventional plankton nets, with little damage to the organisms.||Source Title:||Journal of Plankton Research||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/99930||ISSN:||01427873|
