A regular monthly sampling at the time series station C1 in the Gulf of Trieste, North Adriatic Sea began in 1986. The time series station C1 was initiated by the University of Trieste, and was later taken care by the Laboratory of Marine Biology of Trieste after its formal institution in December 1979 and, since October 2005, by the Department of Biological Oceanography, now Division of Oceanography (OCE) of OGS, Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e Geofisica Sperimentale of Trieste.  more

Since 2006 the time series station C1 has been formally included in the Italian network of long term ecological research sites (LTER-Italy) as part of the northern Adriatic LTER site. Scientific responsible from 1998 to 2005: Prof. Serena Fonda Umani, Univ. Trieste - Scientific responsible from 2006: Marina Cabrini - Principal data originators: Daniela Fornasaro, Damiano Virgilio. Biomass is derived from cellular Carbon content and cell biovolume. Edler (1979) and Hillebrand et al. (1999). Cell volumes were converted to carbon content using standard conversion formula (Strathmann, 1967; Smayda, 1978) until 2008. Successively, carbon content was calculated from cell biovolumes using the formula introduced by Menden-Deuer and Lessard (2000).
