Abstract: This dataset contains results from the Aurora Australis Voyage 7 (KROCK) 1992-93, related to mesoscale distribution of krill and zooplankton communities in Prydz Bay in relation to physical and biological oceanographic parameters. There were five objectives of this project: to define the distribution patterns and abundance of krill in the krill dominated continental shelf area of the Prydz Bay ... View entire text

Quality Only four of the scheduled sites were not sampled due to heavy pack ice cover (9-10/10), in the areas of Four Ladies Bank and Cape Darnley. Sections of the study areas were previously sampled for zooplankton in 1990/91, and hydroacoustic data were also previously sampled in 1990/91 and 1991/92. A minimum of 88 stations were planned, approximately 30 nautical miles apart in latitude and longitude. ... View entire text
