Seabird distributions during the upwelling season of 2000, northern California Current system, GLOBEC.
Entry ID: birds_metabirds_NEP

Abstract: As a part of the GLOBEC-Northeast Pacific project, seabird populations were surveyed on two cruises to northern portion of the California Current System. The surveys were conducted simultaneously in June (onset of upwelling) and August (mature phase of upwelling).

Observations were conducted continuously during daylight, using a 300-m-wide transect strip. Within that strip, birds were counted that occurred within the 90 degree quadrant off the ship's bow. Two observers were on watch during all survey periods.

R/V New Horizon cruises:
NH0005 28 May - 13 June 2000
NH0007 27 July - 12 Aug 2000

Note: A second survey was conducted in 2002. As of (Sept 12, 2005), the 2002 data set has not been released by the PI.
