Georges Bank zooplankton concentrations, derived from sampling taken on forty-four cruises, 1995-1999, U.S. GLOBEC.Entry ID: zoo_meter_GB
Abstract: The major objective of the U.S. GLOBEC, Georges Bank project was to understand the population dynamics of key species on the Bank - Cod, Haddock and two species of zooplankton (Calanus finmarchicus and Pseudocalanus) - in terms of their coupling to the physical environment and in terms of their predators and prey.
Zooplankton sampling was conducted on forty-four cruises ... on Georges Bank during the period 1995-2000. The MOCNESS System was the primary sampling tool. Additional samples were obtained by Bongo net tows and Pumping systems. Screening for taxonomy was conducted by Dr. Ted Durbin's laboratory at the Graduate School of Oceanography, University of Rhode Island. Some taxon are further sorted by life stage and sex. The raw organism counts have been converted to water column concentrations by cubic meter and square meter. A detailed description of sampling and analytical methods can be found in:

Taxonomic names and codes are based on the National Oceanographic Data Center's Taxonomic List, version 8.
