Abstract: This dataset includes data collected from the ice station set up in Resolute
Passage, 74 degrees 40'N and 94 degrees 54'W between the years 1983 to 1989.
Plankton samples were collected using a 1/2m ring net with 100-200u mesh towed
vertically from approximately 2 metres off the bottom to the surface. The
samples collected were preserved in 4% formaldehyde and later analysed for
species/stage ... composition for the dominant copepod taxa: Pseudocalanus,
Metridia, Calanus hyperboreus, C. glacialis, Oithona, Oncaea, Microcalanus.
All other species of copepods were lumped together into the category "other".
Associated chlorophyll and phaeophytin data are available. The associated
nutrient data was of poor quality and not archived. To investigate the plankton
community structure and establish a baseline to monitor ecosystem changes in
