Entry ID: ArcOD_2006P2

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Zooplankton was sampled at 16 stations across the Bering Strait during a joint Russian-U.S. research cruise at R/V Tiglax in July 1991. Vertical stratified tows (0 - bottom and 0 – thermocline depth) were done with a ring net (1 m diameter, 333 µm mesh). Distinct zooplankton communities were found in the Bering Sea/Anadyr and Alaskan water masses. The influence of the Anadyr water led to a decline ... View entire text

Purpose: To assess summer species composition, abundance and distribution of zooplankton across the Bering Strait.
