Mesozooplankton Abundance and Biomass [Ashjian, C. and R. Campbell]



This data set contains mesozooplankton biomass and abundance from net tows conducted during the SHEBA drift experiment. Two data sets are archived. The first, SHEBA_ALLTAXA.xls, presents total displacement volume biomass as both dry weight (mg dw m-3) and carbon (mg C m-3) and abundances of all taxa, including copepodite stages for the copepods, as # m-3. The second data set, SHEBA_NapuliarCounts.xls, presents the stage specific naupliar abundances for the dominant copepod taxa as integrated abundance (# m-2) in each depth interval.
