After the usual sampling of the bulk water we had a meeting all together to discuss about how the experiment is going on. Manolis showed the graphs with the latest concentration of the nutrients and it was clear that the numbers weren’t so high, even if we could see a normal, but low, distribution of the nutrients… We decided to go on with the values we had, without adding anything. We wanted to see natural conditions. Anastasia showed us the graphs for the growth of bacteria: there’s a peak of bacteria in day 3 and then, probably a drop of heterotrophic ones as the nutrients decrease. Being in a meeting with so many researchers seems like a film scene where everyone says his opinion and adds something to the discussion according to their knowledge and studies. It’s very challenging!
