Zooplankton distribution and isotope turnover during Operation Swordfish
Kuenzler, Edward J.
MetadataShow full item record
An evaluation was made of the importance of marine zooplankton in elemental cycling and transport of elements through the thermocline. Zooplankton density was measured in the eastern Pacific Ocean. Some measurement of elemental elimination rates were made using zooplankton labeled by fallout from a nuclear test; other measurements used animals tagged with tracer Il31 or ca58. The turnover time for cobalt in the upper 100 m of the sea is not more than 100 years based on cobalt flux rates in zooplankton alone (U).

Ray representation of sound scattering by weakly scattering deformed fluid cylinders : simple physics and application to zooplankton Stanton, Timothy K.; Clay, Clarence S.; Chu, Dezhang (Acoustical Society of America, 1993-12)Data indicate that certain important types of marine organisms behave acoustically like weakly scattering fluid bodies (i.e., their material properties appear fluidlike and similar to those of the surrounding fluid medium). ...
