Is there a book or an electronic resource that details popular diatom collection sites and their GPS coordinates? Please kindly share them herein. Thank you.

I remember seeing one site, but information there is very scarce. I mostly want diatom sites for USA, but a world wide version would work too. For example, we will travel to Hawaii in a few years, so it would be nice to know where (and when) exactly to collect diatoms.

hi,

i am not sure whether you have to join the group to access the files, but Steve Gill has made available to the yahoo diatom group a very comprehensive list of diatomite sites:

enjoy!

Thank you, Brian.
I joined the group to access the list (currently waiting for group owner to approve me, I guess). I probably have a few GPS coordinates to add there too, unless my friend Rod already did so.

Brian,

There are only lists for fossil diatomite, and no list for live/recent sample sites.

Is it because we assume live/recent samples can be collected almost everywhere? A good live site can produce good forms and concentration though, so it may be worth it to list those as well?
