Cooperative Zooplankton Dataspace

Pelagic Invertebrates Collection The Scripps Pelagic Invertebrates Collection is among the world's preeminent collections of marine zooplankton. It includes over 120,000 whole zooplankton samples containing some 108 specimens. In addition to worldwide geographic coverage, the Collection includes the remarkable CalCOFI zooplankton time series, which has surveyed the California Current since 1949.
ZooDB - Zooplankton Database The ZooDB zooplankton data module provides a queriable interface to extensive zooplankton data from the California Current System, 1951 through present. The plankton samples analyzed are mostly from CalCOFI, a long-term sampling program that continues actively today. Most of the data are from nighttime samples from springtime cruises in two distinct geographical areas off California: Southern California and Central California.
Brinton Euphausiid Plot Gallery The Brinton euphausiid plot gallery presents geographical distributions of selected species, illustrated by Dr. Edward Brinton as a companion to Brinton and Townsend (2003). The selected plots are from 1969, the decade of the 1970s, and subsequent El Niño-associated intervals. Broad abundance intervals are expressed as numbers per 10 m².
BTEDB - Brinton and Townsend Euphausiid Database The Brinton and Townsend euphausiid data module provides a queriable interface to extensive euphausiid data, 1951 through present, from the California Current System. The plankton samples analyzed are from CalCOFI (California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations), a long-term ocean sampling program that continues actively today. Most of the data are from two distinct geographical areas off California: Southern California and Central California. There are also data from off Baja California prior to 1986.
MEDB - Marinovic Euphausiid Database The Marinovic euphausiid data module provides a queriable interface to extensive euphausiid data, 2001 through 2007, from the central sector of the California Current System. The plankton samples analyzed are from tows on CalCOFI lines 60 and 66.7, and sampling continues actively today. Most of the data are from summer (June or July) and fall (October or November) cruises off Central California.
CEQuI - Comprehensive Euphausiid Query Interface The comprehensive euphausiid data module provides an interface that queries across two research programs: the Brinton and Townsend Euphausiid database and the Marinovic Euphausiid Database. A joint display of the three species in common is provided in table and graph form.
