  • Description:
    "This atlas presents detailed methods used for the collection of the CPR and the concurrent temperature and salinity data along the Gulf of Maine route. It describes the CPR samples identification, staging, and counting, and the quality control steps employed on the CPR, and the concurrent environmental data. The resulting database content and specifications are also described. Techniques used for deriving means, variances, annual peak abundances, and anomalous conditions are described in the methods section. In graphic form, the atlas presents time-space mean conditions for thirty-one of the most dominant zooplankton organisms, plus total zooplankton, along the Gulf of Maine SOOP transect for the base period of 1978 through 2007. Over the time span of 1961 through 2008 it presents changes in the seasonal cycle, and time of annual maximum abundance for each taxon within three sections (Massachusetts Bay, central Gulf of Maine, and western Scotian Shelf) of the transect. Within these three sections, it shows standardized anomalies of abundance of each taxon for the 1961 through 2008 time span. Also shown for these three transect sections are the annual variations of relative contribution to the total catch of the six most abundance taxa"--Introduction.
