Radiolarian data from IN2017_V01
These data were generated by Kelly-Anne Lawler (corresponding author, firstname.lastname@example.org) with taxonomic assistance from Dr Giuseppe Cortese. These data are based on samples collected during voyage IN2017_V01 of the RV Investigator, co-chief scientists, Leanne Armand and Phil O’Brien.
The IN2017-V01 post-cruise report is available through open access via the e-document portal through the ANU library.

Samples for radiolarian analysis were collected on board immediately after core recovery. Samples were air dried at ambient temperature (~21 degrees C), and their processing in preparation for microscopy was based on the method of Cortese and Prebble (2015). Cover slips were adhered to the slides using Canada Balsam and slides were observed using Olympus BH-2 inverted light microscope at up to 400x magnification. Slides were first counted to determine absolute radiolarian abundance (ARA) and, for samples where ARA was high enough, more than 400 individuals were identified per sample to species/subspecies or genus level. Taxonomic nomenclature used while preparing the dataset was per Lazarus et al. (2015) with additional clarification sought from the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS Editorial Board, 2018) and radiolaria.org (radiolaria.org, 2018).
