The Dataset's Variables and Attributes

Row Type Variable Name Attribute Name Data Type Value
attribute NC_GLOBAL access_formats String .htmlTable,.csv,.json,.mat,.nc,.tsv,.esriCsv,.geoJson
attribute NC_GLOBAL acquisition_description String 'During the IIOE, zooplankton collections were made between 25 degrees N and
45 degrees S latitude and 30 to 120 degrees E longitude. Sampling covered the
entire Indian Ocean, with better coverage north of 10 degrees S latitude.
Though 1927 samples were collected during IIOE, zooplankton data for 1548
standard hauls were considered to be comparable and these alone were utilized
for all publications. A standard haul is defined as an Indian Ocean Standard
net collection of zooplankton in the water column under 1 square meter.'
(Nair, 2005)

When the depth of the water exceeded 200 meters, the net was hauled from a
depth of 200 meters to the surface. In shallower waters, the net was operated
from the bottom to the surface. The material studied was collected during both
day and night. (Pillai, 1973)

'The samples were then to be preserved in 10% formalin neutralized with
hexamethylenetetramine...The samples would then be sent to the Sorting Centre
for further processing.' (Hansen, 1966)

The database is prepared based on published information on these zooplankton samples. Three sets of Tables are made (1) Basic data on zooplankton volume, total population and all the 54 taxa found in the collections. (2) Data emerged from subsorting of copepods, decapods and fish larvae (3) Species level data for chaetognaths for entire Indian Ocean and ostracods for northern Indian Ocean."
