Ecosystem Monitoring of the Northeast U.S. Continental Shelf: Survey Details
Every year, we sample the water column over the Northeast U.S. continental shelf throughout the year and make that data accessible to everyone
The water properties and planktonic community of the Northeast U.S. continental shelf are always changing, so measuring them is no small feat. NOAA Fisheries conducts many surveys of the shelf every year. We collect water column samples and measurements on almost all of them.
