HLY-04-02 Benthic Station Data (benthic faunal data and sediment tracers) (ASCII) [Grebmeier, J. and L. Cooper]


This data set contains measurements of benthic parameters, including bottom water temperature and salinity, bottom water chlorophyll-a concentrations, integrated water column chlorophyll-a, sediment chlorophyll-a present in surface sediments, benthic faunal parameters (abundance, biomass (g/m2), biomass (gC/m2), number of taxa), sediment grain size, total organic carbon (TOC), total organic nitrogen (TON), carbon/nitrogen (C/N), and sediment respiration oxygen uptake rates (O2UR). Data included in this dataset were collected during sampling from May 15. 2004 to June 23, 2004 from the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter (USCGC) Healy (WAGB-20). This sampling on Healy was funded through the Shelf-Basin Interactions SBI)project, which is funded by both the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research. These data are in ASCII format.
