A feasibility study of marine investigations at Cape Bird: Plankton sampling, water temperature, conductivity and chlorophyll content
Entry ID: K014_1969_1970_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: On arrival at Cape Bird it was found that the pack ice had broken early and sampling had to be limited to inshore waters from ice piers with water depths never greater than about 20 feet. Plankton samples were obtained every third day through the summer to provide records of plankton abundance and composition and chlorophyll content of the water. Records were kept of prevailing sea and weather conditions and sea temperatures and conductivity.
