Summary
Abstract: Zooplankton composition and distribution were investigated on the Laptev Sea shelf, over the continental slope and in the adjacent deep Nansen Basin during the joint German-Russian expedition ``Arctic 93'' with RV Polarstern and Ivan Kireyev in August/September 1993. In the shelf area, biomass decreased from west to east with the lowest values in the area influenced by the Lena river runoff. A ... View entire text

Quality ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: The animal counts were done according to standard methods: an aliquot (1:2, 1:4, 1:8, 1:16, 1:32) of the samples was counted after fractionation with a Folsom splitter. The error in splitting samples was not assessed. A minimum of 30 individuals of each species and stage was counted in each sample. With regard catchability of the zooplankton, this study followed the ... View entire text
