Abstract:

This dataset contains zooplankton data collected in association with the Mobile Bay discharge plume aboard R/V Point Sur cruise PS16-20 (PTS02) in the northern Gulf of Mexico from 2016-04-08 to 2016-04-10. Depth-discrete plankton samples were collected during the spring CONCORDE cruise using a Bedford Institute of Oceanography Net Environmental Sampling System (BIONESS). The BIONESS (0.25 m^2 opening) was fitted with 335-µm and 202-µm mesh nets. Zooplankton samples included in this data set were collected nearshore on the coastal shelf downstream of the Mobile Bay river plume to examine how variable freshwater discharge from the Mobile Bay impacts zooplankton distributions. The dataset includes the location, date, bin depth and other sample collection information.

Purpose:

Data were collected during the CONCORDE Spring 2016 cruise to examine how variable freshwater discharge from the Mobile Bay impacts zooplankton distributions.

Theme Keywords:

Zooplankton, Distributions, River plume study, Bedford Institute of Oceanography Net Environmental Sampling System (BIONESS), zooplankton concentration, plankton net tow
