PacMARS Benthic Infaunal Parameters (1970-2012)

This dataset contains summary measurements of average benthic macroinfaunal taxa to the family level collected at each station for the identified cruise, with parameters of station, abundance, wet weight biomass (gww/m2), carbon dry weight biomass (gC/m2), number of taxa, Shannon-Weaner diversity and evenness indices, and number of grabs collected/station. This dataset is part of the Pacific Marine Arctic Regional Synthesis (PacMARS) Project.
