Six cruises were made from May, 1978 to May, 1979 to measure the regional distributions of chlorophyll, silicate, nitrate and nitrite, phosphate, temperature, and salinity in the vacinity of Nantucket Shoals on the New England continental shelf. A summary of the hydrographic observations made on the first three cruises has already been presented in Limeburner and Beardsley (1979). A summary of the biological data obtained on five of the six cruises and the hydrographic observations made during the last three cruises is presented here in graphic form.
