SNACS: Environmental Variability, Bowhead Whale Distributions, and Inupiat Subsistence Whaling - microzooplankton

Summary

This data set includes microplankton abundance and estimated carbon biomass from Niskin bottle casts taken on board the R/V Annika Marie during August - September 2005 and 2006 in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas, off the coast of Barrow, Alaska. Each data set presents station, transect or line, water sample depth, chlorophyll a concentration and percent of chlorophyll less than 10 um in size, microzooplankton-sized protists (20-200 um, ciliates and heterotrophic dinoflagellates), cells counted per sample, cells per ml, biomass per ml, heterotrophic dinoflagellates as percent of total microzooplankton protists, and for a subset of samples, separate data on protists greater than 40 um in size.
