Benthos and Water Column Process Influences, Northeast Water Polynya Project, 1992


These data include physical and biological parameters measured to address the influence of water column processes on the benthos in the Northeast Water Polynya Project on the northeast Greenland continental shelf and surrounding ice-covered areas in July and August of 1992. Data collected include infaunal density, polychaete biomass, sediment carbon concentration, and benthic pigment concentration measured in replicate box cores at 16 stations. Samples were collected from the ship United States Coast Guard Cutter (USCGC) Polar Sea.
