To understand the environmental impacts of added alkaline minerals on plankton communities, we enclosed natural coastal plankton communities using 53L microcosms and exposed these communities to ground factory slag (2g/53L) and olivine (100g/53L). The microcosms of seawater were kept at 13.5 °C with circulations. The biochemical changes and responses in microcosms were monitored and measured for 21 days. The measured parameters are pH, total alkalinity, temperature, macro-nutrients concentrations, total chlorophyll-a, flow cytometry data, POC/PON, BSi, Rapid Light Curves, zooplankton abundance, the dissolved trace metal concentrations, and the particulate trace metal concentrations.
