UFS Spring 2014 KA32 Results
The Unified Field Study (UFS) for Spring 2014 is a direct comparison of three harvests per week with one dilution rate vs. one harvest per week with one dilution rate using KA32 (Nannochloropsis oceanica).
Here is the experimental protocol used to conduct these runs
Pond Operational Data
Click [here] for the complete operational data for each pond at each site. These data include the measured pond depth (cm), pH, salinity, pond water temperature (C), nitrogen concentration (ppm as N), phosphorus concentration (ppm as P), N:P ratio (molar), the sample ID and tracking ID of a physical sample (if taken), the algae concentration (g/L) as dry weight and ash-free dry weight (AFDW), the ash content of the algal biomass (%), and the optical density at 750nm (OD750). Not all data are available for all sites and ponds.
Click [here] for the complete and daily-averaged instrumentation data for each pond at each site. These data include the pH, oxidation-reduction potention (ORP, mv), pond water temperature (C), pond conductivity (ms.cm), dissolved oxygen concentration (DO, mg/L), dissolved oxygen saturation (%), salinity (g/L), and photosynthetically active radiation (PAR, umol/m2/s). The PAR sensor was connected to only one of the ponds. Not all data are available for all sites and ponds.
Click [here] for the complete and daily-averaged weather data. These data include air temperature (C), relative humidity (%RH), Global Light Intensity (W/m2/s), daily precipitation (cm), wind speed (km/hr), and wind direction (degrees). Not all data are available for all sites.
