This guide instructs educators on the classroom use of transect station data from the Mote Marine Laboratory. This data, from the Phytoplankton Ecology Program, consists of hydrographic conditions (temperature, salinity and density) and chlorophyll fluorescence, which depicts general phytoplankton distributions. Of particular interest are the toxic phytoplankton which produce 'red tide' events. Topics include harmful algal bloom dynamics and prediction methods; temperature-depth relationships; r
