Description
Data on marine bird and mammal distributions in the vicinity on the shelf-slope off North Carolina, in an area influenced by the Gulf Stream and by cold-core eddies. more

The Duke / University of North Carolina Oceanographic Consortium supported a four-day exploratory cruise off North Carolina in August 2004, to survey physical and biological properties in the vicinity of the cold-core eddies which form along the inner edge of the Gulf Stream. This cruise was the result of a collaborative proposal assembled by Richard Barber, Andy Read, Larry Crowder, David Johnston, Veronica Lance, and David Hyrenbach. This cruise surveyed marine bird and mammal distributions in the vicinity on the shelf-slope off North Carolina, in an area influenced by the Gulf Stream and by cold-core eddies. Marine bird and mammal sightings were recorded continuously, while the vessel sailed during daylight hours. The position of the vessel was also recorded every 10 seconds directly from a GPS using the Logger 2000 software, which is publicly available on the internet from the International Fund for Animal Welfare.
