BEST Copepod Integrated Grazing and Production Rates During Spring Process Cruises

This data set contains integrated estimates of chlorophyll biomass and copepod biomass, grazing, and production for the Bering Sea Ecosystem Study-Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BEST-BSIERP) 2008, 2009, and 2010 spring process cruises on the USCGC Healy (HLY0802, HLY0902) and R/V Thompson (TN249). BEST-BSIERP together are the Bering Sea project. Cruise, tow number (Tow#), station number (Sta#), station name (StaName), date (TowDate), local time (LocalTime), net tow depth (TowDepth) in meters, position (latitude, longitude), bottom depth (meters), mean temperature in the upper 50 m (°C), integrated chlorophyll biomass in the upper 50 m, integrated copepod biomass, grazing rate, and production in terms of nitrogen from surface to the depth of the net tow, and Calanus spp. egg production rate are presented for each station.
