Copepoda collected from the Canada Basin Arctic Ocean; Fletcher's Ice Island (T-3) 1970-1972 and AIDJEX, 1975
Entry ID: ArcOD_2008P5

Abstract: This dataset of 6999 records, tabulated from raw data, represents abundances of copepods collected from Fletcher's Ice Island (T-3) in the Canadian Basin of the Arctic Ocean during January 1970 to April 1972 and at AIDJEX from June to September 1975. In 1970-1972 samples were taken, using a 2m-square closing net with a 223-um mesh aperture (sampling 10m increments) and for 1975, a 1-m diameter ... View entire text

Purpose: The objectives of this portion of the study were to evaluate the abundance and species distribution of copepods from the Arctic Ocean 1970-1972 and 1975.
