Cruise Hydrographic Data Reports
We report the data that we collect on our cruises in a Hydrographic Data Report. These reports consist of:
Introductions - Contains the standard procedures, tabulated data descriptions, associated ancillary projects, footnote definitions, and literature cited.
Hydrographic Data Reports - Quarterly tabulated data reports. The 60 year dataset includes temperature, salinity, oxygen and phosphate observations. In 1961, nutrient analysis expanded to include silicate, nitrate and nitrite; in 1973, chlorophyll was added; in 2008, the nutrient analysis expanded to include ammonium.
Primary Productivity Data Reports - Quarterly Tabulated Data Reports. These are a subset of the hydrographic data report containing only stations in which primary productivity experiments were carried out. Includes hydrographic data along with primary productivity data.
Personnel - List of personnel per cruise, cruise dates, ports of call, ship name, and captain's name.
Macrozooplankton Biomass Report - Contains the macrozooplankton biomass, as wet displacement volume, after removal of large (>5 ml) organisms from the starboard side of a 71 cm mouth diameter paired net (bongo net) equipped with 0.505mm plankton mesh; towed obliquely from 210 meters to the surface.
Spatial Pattern Figures - Contains vertical (line 90 only) and horizontal (10 and 200 meters along the standard CalCOFI grid) contour plotted hydrographic data.
Bird Figures - Quartely Avifauna distribution observations over the standard CalCOFI grid.
