Data from the U.S. Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) Equatorial Pacific (EqPac) Process Study along 140°W during 1992

This dataset includes physical, chemical, and biological data, including plankton abundance, biomass, biovolume, counts, population estimates, primary production, carotenoids, phaeopigments, fatty acids, chlorophylls, aggregates and particulate matter, "marine snow", thymidine and leucine uptake, nitrate and saturated ammonium uptake rates, oxygen production, irradiance, Lu683, PAR, Thorium-234 activity, water temperature, currents and salinity, and other data.

The U.S. Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) Equatorial Pacific (EqPac) process study was conducted along 140°W during the calendar year 1992. Four process cruises took place, with a fifth benthic cruise and sediment trap legs adding to the overall study.
