Description
Zooplankton from the Chukchi and Beaufort seas in the fall of 2002 during the R/V Mirai cruise. more

This dataset, consisting of 1313 records, represents 63 terminal taxa of zooplankton from the Chukchi and Beaufort seas in the fall of 2002. Zooplankton and ichthyoplankton were collected from the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas during the fall 2002 R/V Mirai cruise. Samples were taken at 33 stations using a 330 µm Bongo net. In general, the coastal stations were warmer and less saline than farther from shore and peaks in fluorescence were near 25 m depth. The distribution of zooplankton was patchy, both in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas, and was dominated by copepods.
