The data has been collected during the Nansen Legacy seasonal cruise Q4 28 Nov-17 Dec 2019 on the research vessel RV Kronprins Haakon (toktnummer 2019711), along a transect from 76N to 82N east of Svalbard. The dataset contains mesozooplankton abundance (ind/m3). It has been sampled using a MultiNet Midi at 5 distinct depths. Small mesozooplankton were collected with a mesh-size 64 µm and large mesozooplankton were collected with a mesh-size 180 µm. All specimens are identified to the lowest taxonomical level and the abundance is given for a specific species and stage or size group.
The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 69 records.
2 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
