DescriptionThis dataset holds occurrence data of gelatinous mesozooplankton species (Cnidaria and Ctenophora) that was collected during the Japanese contribution to the Collaborative East Antarctic Marine Census (CEAMARC) project. CEAMARC was a multinational contribution to the Census for Antarctic Marine Life (CAML, IPY Project 53). It involved scientists and students from several nations using three ships from Australia, Japan and France surveying the one area. This collaboration was a highly coordinated and comprehensive survey of the plankton, fish, benthos, oceanography and geophysical conditions of the waters north of Terre Adélie and George V Land of Eastern Antarctica. CEAMARC has provided a robust benchmark of the marine life in this poorly studied sector and will help to establish the monitoring of future changes in this region.
Study ExtentSamples were taken in the Southern Ocean near East Antarctica during the Austral summer of 2008
SamplingSamples were taken with a multinet or a NORPAC
The orders Siphonophorae, Anthoatecata, Leptomedusae, Narcomedusae, Beroida, Anthoathecata and Trachymedusae within the Hydrozoa (Cnidaria) and the Nuda (Ctenophora) were sampled using nets.
Ctenophoracommon name: Ctenophora rank: phylum
Cnidariacommon name: Cnidaria rank: phylum
