  • Description:
    The Coastal & Oceanic Plankton Ecology, Production & Observation Database (COPEPOD) is an online, global coverage plankton database. Designed by the former lead-developer of the World Ocean Database Plankton (1998-2004), this new plankton database effort presents significant amounts of additional data content along with a renewed focus on providing better data access, integrated products, and acknowledgment of the original plankton investigator(s). This document presents the data sources and methods used in this new database and summarizes its contents as of the December 2005 monthly update. This document also presents a new methodology for building global zooplankton biomass fields, including improved techniques for combining data from different sampling gear and measurement methods. The results of this new methodology are compared to the World Ocean Database 2001, finding that previous work had over-estimated its zooplankton carbon mass by up to four times
