PROBES Meso-Zooplankton from 1980 and 1981

This data set contains PROBES MOCNESS Zooplankton data report files. During the PROBES program, Sharon Smith and co-workers conducted MOCNESS tows along the PROBES lines in the Southeastern Bering Sea. The results of these cruises were stored as data reports, and as part of planned seabird studies Ken Coyle had the data sets from 1980 and 1981 digitized. The mesh of the net used to collect these data was 149 micrometers and the abundance numbers are reported in cubic meters. This data set is part of the Bering Sea Ecosystem Study-Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BEST-BSIERP). BEST-BSIERP together are the Bering Sea project.
