Seabird distributions during the upwelling season of 2000, northern California Current system, GLOBEC.Entry ID: birds_metabirds_NEP
Abstract: As a part of the GLOBEC-Northeast Pacific project, seabird populations were
surveyed on two cruises to northern portion of the California Current System.
The surveys were conducted simultaneously in June (onset of upwelling) and
August (mature phase of upwelling).
... Observations were conducted continuously during daylight, using a 300-m-wide
transect strip. Within that strip, birds were counted that occurred within the
90 degree quadrant off the ship's bow. Two observers were on watch during all
R/V New Horizon cruises:
NH0005 28 May - 13 June 2000
NH0007 27 July - 12 Aug 2000
Note: A second survey was conducted in 2002. As of (Sept 12, 2005), the 2002
data set has not been released by the PI.
