Title: Zooplankton populations were sampled at standard stations using a MOCNESS 1 m^2 net tow system, 2000 and 2002, California Current System, Northeast Pacific GLOBEC Program.
Description:
Abstract:
Standard sections were repeatly sampled for zooplankton concentrations using a MOCNESS 1 m^2 net tow system during 2000 and 2002. These cross shelf/California Current sections are located off Northern California and Southern Oregon. Organisms are identified at the species level. Abundance is calculated. The ancillary environmental data (CTD-plus sensor packages mounted to the frame of the MOCNESS) are not available at this time. A detailed description of the MOCNESS system can be found in: Wiebe, P.H., K.H. Burt, S. H. Boyd, A.W. Morton, 1976. The multiple opening/closing net and environmental sensing system for sampling zooplankton.
