Northern marine coastal and ecosystem studies in the Canadian Beaufort Sea—water quality data

Northern marine coastal and ecosystem studies in the Canadian Beaufort Sea—water quality data The objective of this project was to gather data to develop a model of the food web of the lower trophic levels of the nearshore area of the Beaufort Sea. Sampling took place from 2005 to 2008 using the CCGS Nahidik. The multidisciplinary character of the Nahidik program produced measurements of biology/ecology (primary production, phytoplankton, zooplankton, benthos, fish), chemical and physical oceanography, contaminants, geology and hydro acoustics. The data were collected in July and August of each year. The Nahidik program provided data to provide a baseline for future studies as well as an information source for environmental assessment. This record contains water chemistry data collected as part of this project including suspended nitrogen, dissolved nitrogen, suspended phosphorus, dissolved phosphorus, dissolved organic carbon, suspended carbon, chlorophyll a, and suspended silicon. 2022-11-28 Fisheries and Oceans Canada Patricia.Ramlal@dfo-mpo.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyPlanktonOceansMarine SedimentsOcean ChemistryArctic OceanBeaufort SeaArcticBacteriaOceanography Northern marine coastal and ecosystem studies in the Canadian Beaufort Sea—water quality dataESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/Northern_Marine_Coastal_and_Ecosystem_Studies_in_the_Canadian_Beaufort_Sea/MapServer/2 Northern marine coastal and ecosystem studies in the Canadian Beaufort Sea—water quality dataESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/Northern_Marine_Coastal_and_Ecosystem_Studies_in_the_Canadian_Beaufort_Sea/MapServer/2 Northern Marine Coastal and Ecosystem Studies in the Canadian Beaufort Sea- water quality dataCSV https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Northern_Marine_Coastal_and_Ecosystem_Studies_in_the_Canadian_Beaufort_Sea/water_quality_data_données_sur_la_qualité_de_l'eau.csv Data DictionnaryPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Northern_Marine_Coastal_and_Ecosystem_Studies_in_the_Canadian_Beaufort_Sea/Data_dictionnaire.pdf
