These datasets contain a six-year long record of shell morphology of the polar planktic foraminifera Neogloboquadrina pachyderma (sensu stricto) from near Palmer Station, Antarctica. The PARFLUX Mark 78H 21-sample trap was deployed in 170m water depth as part of the Palmer Long Term Ecological Research program (total water column depth 350 m, 64° 30'S, 66° 00'W).
For manual analysis: Specimens were imaged using Olympus SZX7 transmitted light microscope, QImaging FAST 1394 camera and Q-Capture software. Image backgrounds were adjusted in Adobe PhotoshopCC 2015. Morphological parameters were measured using ImageProPlus 6.2.
For automated analysis: Bulk samples measured using automated microscope and image analysis system that scans and captures images via a 12 MP Olympus CC12 camera attached to a Wild MZ3 incident light microscope (Analysis3.0)
