Compiled in this report are tables of zooplankton biomass data (displacement volume), carbon equivalents, and associated net tow data (volume filtered, depth, temperature, and salinity) collected with a Multlple Opening/Closing Net Environmental Sampling System (MOCNESS) during the warm-core ring cruises which took between September 1981 and October 1982. Rings sampled were 81-D, 82-B, and 82-H. Also included are plots of tow positions relative to ring center and plots of biomass and cumulative proportion of biomass versus depth. A total of 81 tows and 1220 samples were taken.

The ecology of colonial radiolarians : their colony morphology, trophic interactions and associations, behavior, distribution, and the photosynthesis of their symbionts Swanberg, Neil Ralph (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-08)Colonial radiolarians (Spumellaria) are among the most common and abundant large zooplankton, but they have been little studied by modern biologists. Colonies were found on 98% of epipelagic diving stations in the period ...
Limits of Nematoscelis megalops in the northwestern Atlantic in relation to Gulf Stream cold core rings. I, Horizontal and vertical distributions Wiebe, Peter H.; Boyd, Steven H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-01)The hydrographic limit of the distribution of Nematoscelis megalops in the Northwestern Atlantic Ocean is usually marked by the abrupt changes in water properties across the Gulf Stream. There are, however, isolated but ...
