Channel Islands, Kelp Forest Monitoring, Survey, Band Transect, 1983-2007

This dataset from the Channel Islands National Park's Kelp Forest Monitoring Program has measurements of the abundance and distribution of rare and clumped organisms not adequately sampled by quadrats. The summary data presented here represents the mean density per square meter. Sampling is conducted annually between the months of May-October, so the Time data in this file is July 1 of each year (a nominal value). The actual measurements were taken at various depths, so the Depth data in this file is the depth of the station's temperature logger, which is a typical depth.
