A Video Plankton Recorder (VPR) was towed, in a towyo fashion, along three
180-200 km transects across the northeast region of Georges Bank during June
1994, January/March 1995. The VPR was equipped with an array of video cameras
and a CTD unit. Video tapes were analyzed for plankton abundance (a selected
suite of taxon). The data reported here ... are approximately 4 second values of
plankton abundance, temperature, salinity, light transmission, and fluorescence
along the tow track.
