MOCNESS - Depths of Zooplankton & Fecal Pellet Preserved Samples

MN depth data inaccurate. Depth data estimated using sigma-theta values from MN to obtain corresponding depth values from ODF CTD casts taken at approx. same location and time.

Upper depths of zero are surface and assumed to be zero.

Upper depths that are "nd" are from a sigma-theta value on the MN that corresponds to CTD depths <5m, of which there are no ODF CTD data for.
