Influence of Glacier Run Off on Ecosystem Structure in Gulf of Alaska Fjords 2004-2011

Data Download [1.2MB] | AK Science Portal | Project Site | Date Range: 2004 - 2011

Marine ecosystems respond to a range of habitat variability in coastal zones modified by glacial freshwater outflows, biophysical data were collected in three study regions that included four major glacial fjord systems around the Gulf of Alaska. A suite of geographic, oceanographic, nutrient and biological attributes were sampled at these three study regions during peak ice-melt season in summer.

Data sets included:

Oceanographic Profile Data from Glacier Fjords of Alaska, 2004-2011 Metadata
Marine Bird and Mammal Surveys in Glacier Fjords of Alaska, 2004-2011 Metadata
Near-surface Nutrients Data from Gulf of Alaska Fjords, 2004-2011 Metadata
Glacier Runoff Biophysical Data in Gulf of Alaska Fjords, 2004-2011 Metadata
Modified Herring Trawl Fish Catch Data, Gulf of Alaska Fjords, 2004-2011 Metadata
Zooplankton Biomass Data from Prince William Sound, Icy Bay and Yakutat Bay, Alaska 2010-2011 Metadata
Zooplankton Displacement Volume in Glacier Bay, Alaska, 2004 Metadata
