HLY-08-02 and HLY-09-02 Microzooplankton Biomass and Composition



During the Bering Sea Ecosystem Study-Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BEST-BSIERP) US Coast Guard Cutter Healy cruises in March-May 2008 (HLY0802) and April-May 2009 (HLY0902), microzooplankton biomass and community composition was assessed for initial water samples taken for mesozooplankton grazing rate experiments. Abundance (cells/ml) and biomass (ugC/l) are given for total microzooplankton, ciliates, heterotrophic dinoflagellates, and microzooplankton > and < 40 um in size.

BEST-BSIERP together are the Bering Sea project.
