Short summary
Monitoring of marine waters is currently mainly limited to low-resolution methods, while the ocean can be highly variable both in time and space. This study explores the use of two high-resolution methods to study phytoplankton dynamics and uses a model to organize the large amount of data. The results show that the combination of FRR fluorometry and flow cytometry offers an elaborate view of the phytoplankton community and can improve existing monitoring programs.
