Abstract: The Institute of Marine Science (IMS) maintains an oceanographic
database using the Ingres(tm) relational database management system
(RDBMS). It contains physical, chemical, biological and geological
data from the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, Chukchi Sea, Beaufort Sea,
Prince William Sound, Cook Inlet and other coastal waters. Currently,
the database contains data as far back as 1970 and it is ... about 500
Mbytes in size. Access is restricted to IMS researchers. However most
data can be extracted from the database and forward to other
researchers on a at-cost basis. Copies of most data were submitted to
the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC).
% STD - Salinity, Temperature and Depth. 60% of the database.
% CM - Current Meters.
% TG - Tide Gauges.
% INFAUNA - Benthic Data from the Bering and Chukchi Seas.
% PHYTO - Phytoplankton data from the ISHTAR project.
% ZOOP - Zooplankton data from the ISHTAR, APPRISE and other projects.
% CHL - Chlorophyll data from the ISHTAR project.
% PP - Primary productivity, carbon and nitrogen uptake data from the ISHTAR
% NUTRIENT - Nutrient chemistry data from the ISHTAR project.
% METAL - Heavy metal concentration data. (very small)
% GRAIN SIZE - Sediment grain size data from the beaufort and chukchi seas.
Exxon Oil Spill Data
This database is "litigation sensitive." Access is restricted to researchers
working on the Coastal Habitat Injury Assessment (CHIA) project.
% Semicircle Density
% Limpet Growth/Survivorship
% Mussel Growth/Survivorship
% Swath Data
% Mussel Histology
% Photo Analysis
% Shallow Infaunal and Epifaunal Data
% Deep Infaunal Data, 40+ Meters
The Institute of Marine Science (IMS) is the oldest and the largest
unit of the School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences. It is active in
research and graduate training at the masters and doctoral levels,
supports coastal facilities at Seward and Kasitsna Bay, and operates
the 133-foot research vessel Alpha Helix for the National Science
