Description
Study on meiofauna collected in the Artic Ocean (the Lomonosov Ridge, the Amundsen Basin and the Morris Jesup Rise). The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Jivaluk, J. (1993). Comparative study of the meiobenthos in the Arctic region. MSc Thesis. RUG: Gent. 135 pp. more

The meiofauna has been studied in multiple corer samples collected from seven stations in the Arctic Ocean between 31 August 1991 and 16 September 1991. The focus lies on the density of the observed phyla and an individual count of the nematode species. For each phylum/species two subsamples were analyzed. Samples were taken at depths ranging between 1072-4273 m and different mesh sizes are used to collect the meiobenthos.
