ATP3 Unified Field Study DataThe Algae Testbed Public-Private Partnership ATP3 was established with the goal of investigating open pond algae cultivation across different geographic climatic seasonal and operational conditions while setting the benchmark for quality data collection analysis and dissemination. Identical algae cultivation systems and data analysis methodologies were established at testbed sites across the continental United States and Hawaii. Within this framework the Unified Field Studies UFS were designed to characterize the cultivation of different algal strains during all 4 seasons across this testbed network. The dataset presented here is the complete curated climatic cultivation harvest and biomass composition data for each season at each site. These data enable others to do in-depth cultivation harvest techno-economic life cycle resource and predictive growth modeling analysis as well as develop crop protection strategies for the nascent algae industry.NREL Sub award Number DE-AC36-08-GO28308
