This hydrography is from a sampling of the entire coastal current system (Boothbay to the Hague Line) during a two-week cruise in early to middle August 2001. Data is being analyzed using computer models of the flow field (collaborations with Drs. Huijie Xue, University of Maine and Christopher Naimie, Dartmouth College) and will be combined with a number of other, ongoing studies of postlarval abundance and settlement. Our long-term goal is to derive a mechanistic model of spatial and temporal lobster recruitment dynamics, an effort that ultimately will be coordinated with Canadian and other U.S. colleagues.


This hydrographic data complements the larval lobster data also located on this site.
