NODC Accession 0115197 includes discrete sample, meteorological, tows - plankton tows and biological data collected aboard the JOHN N. COBB during cruises SECM, jc0005, jc0009, jc0012, jc0016, jc0018, jc0105, jc0109, jc0113, jc0116, jc0118, jc0205, jc0209, jc0213, jc0216, jc0302, jc0304b, jc0305, jc0308, jc0310, jc0312, jc0406, jc0408, jc0411, jc0414, jc0506, jc0508, jc0510, jc0512, jc0608, jc0611, jc0613, jc0616, jc9706, jc9709, jc9711, jc9714, jc9717, jc9805, jc9808, jc9811, jc9815, jc9818, jc9906, jc9909, jc9912, jc9915 and jc9918 in the Coastal Waters of SE Alaska, Gulf of Alaska and North Pacific Ocean from 1997-05-24 to 2006-08-20. These data include BIOMASS, Displacement Volume, WATER DEPTH, SPECIES IDENTIFICATION, SPECIES IDENTIFICATION - LIFE STAGE, ANIMALS - INDIVIDUAL - COUNTS, ZOOPLANKTON BIOMASS, TAXONOMIC CODE and PHYTOPLANKTON BIOMASS. The instruments used to collect these data include thermosalinographs, bottle, CTD, net and radiometer. These data were collected by Alex C Wertheimer, Emily A Fergusson, Joseph A Orsi and Molly V Sturdevant of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - Alaska Fisheries Science Center as part of NEP. The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) submitted these data to NODC on 2013-10-31.
