Laboratory and Field Data for a Performance Evaluation of the PhytoFind, an In-Place Phytoplankton Classification Tool
This data release presents the laboratory and field results of a performance evaluation conducted on the Turner Designs, Inc., PhytoFind, an in-place phytoplankton classification tool. The laboratory evaluation included tests that were designed to characterize PhytoFind performance under a range of conditions that may affect phytoplankton fluorescence and sensor response. Laboratory tests included a range of phytoplankton types, morphologies, and biomass; water temperatures; and matrix challenges. Laboratory evaluations on the PhytoFind were performed at U.S. Geological Survey offices in Orlando, Florida and Troy, New York on various dates from July to November 2019. Data from a moving-boat survey was designed to...
