Description
MAR-ECO (2003 - 2010) was an international exploratory study of the animals inhabiting the northern mid-Atlantic. more

Scientists from 16 nations around the northern Atlantic Ocean participated in research of the waters around the mid-Atlantic Ridge from Iceland to the Azores. This data set is subset of the data collected, and comprises presence/absence records for zooplankton, nekton and epibenthos, collected in 2004 on R/V G.O. Sars and M/S Loran. Marine mammals and birds recorded on the same expedition are given in a separate data set. Sampling details described in Wenneck, T. de Lange, Falkenhaug, T. and O.A. Bergstad. 2008. Strategies, methods, and technologies adopted on the RV G.O. Sars MAR-ECO expedition to the mid-Atlantic Ridge in 2004. Deep-sea Research II. 55: 6-28.
