Summary

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release provides microcystin, chlorophyll, and cell-count data for assessing the effect of salinity tolerance on cyanobacteria associated with a harmful algal bloom in Lake Okeechobee, Florida. All data are reported as raw measured values and are not rounded to USGS significant figures. Water and algal bloom material were collected from Lake Okeechobee, Florida on July 7, 2017. This dataset includes measurements of subsamples taken in the laboratory, collected July 9 to July 17, 2017, at nine different salinity concentrations.

Purpose

The data were collected by the USGS Florida Water Science Center, in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the USGS Priority Ecosystems Greater Everglades Program, and the USGS Environmental Health Program, as part of a study to evaluate the effect of salinity tolerance on cyanobacteria associated with a harmful algal bloom in Lake Okeechobee, Florida. These data are published in support of the USGS Scientific Investigations Report 2018-5092 (https://dx.doi.org/10.3133/sir20185092)
