Midwater time series

Project Manager and Lead Scientist: Bruce Robison

MBARI has been surveying the midwater and providing a quantitative analysis of the animals encountered since 1993. With approximately one Ventana dive per month, the time series measures the identity, abundance, and vertical distribution of the constituents of the midwater fauna at specific sites. The data generated have been employed in a large number of publications and dissertations.
