Marine animal sighting and census data from the RESOLUTE and other platforms as part of the Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP) from 15 June 1971 to 29 September 1977 (NCEI Accession 7800682)

Marine animal sighting and census data were collected from the RESOLUTE and other platforms from 15 June 1971 to 29 September 1977. Data were collected by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) as part of Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP).

Data were processed by NODC to the NODC standard F127 Marine Animal and Census format. Full format description is available from NODC at www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODC-Archive/f127.html. An analog file for this accession is available from NODC user services.

The F127 format is used for data from field observations of marine animals. Data may be reported either for individual, random sightings or for sightings made as part of systematic ship or aircraft surveys along specified tracks. These data provide information on animal population densities and distributions, activities, migratory routes and breeding locales. Cruise or survey information, start and end positions, start and end times, and platform speed, direction, and altitude are reported for each observation or series of observations. Position, date and time are reported for each sighting location, along with a code indicating presence or absence of animals and, if present, their distance to the observer, shoreline, and ice edge and heading direction. For each sighting location, animal sighting data are reported by species for all observed species. Species identification, total number of individuals, and counts by age group (adults, subadults, juveniles, unknown) may be reported in summary for all animals sighted or by subgroups distinguished by sex, behavior, markings, or other characteristics. A text record is available for comments.
