Description
Zooplankton populations were monitored on a monthly basis (Jan-Jun), years 1995-1999, in Georges Bank, for a total of thirty cruises. more

Zooplankton populations were monitored on a monthly basis (Jan-Jun), years 1995-1999, inb Georges Bank, for a total of thirty cruises. Plankton tows were made using a MOCNESS 10 system with 5-6 (10 m^2) nets having 3.00-mm circular mesh. Nets are opened and closed sequentially by commands through conducting cable from the surface. Organisms are identified at the species level. Abundance is calculated. In a companion file, length data are reported at the species level (see related URLs). Environmental data (CTD sensor package appended to the MOCNESS) are reported in an ancillary object/file (see related URLs). Important Information: (1) The catch from each net was sub-sampled and all animals in the sub-sample were counted. (2) Due to the shear volume of data, only those animals found were represented in these on-line data, i.e. no animals with zero abundance were listed. (3) The precision variation in the latitude and longitude numbers is as reported. (4) Not all nets for all tows are represented here. Some nets came back empty. (5) See the companion file containing the moc10data length measurements of the organisms (see related URLs).
