Benthic functional diversity using imagery from drop down live camera feed in the Norwegian part of the Barents Sea in 2017
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01602

Summary

Abstract:
Multiple images of the seafloor at six sites across a broad latitudinal range in the Barents Sea in the Arctic were collected in July 2017 on the month long scientific cruise JR16006. The dataset includes environmental variables for each accompanied image. Each image (406 x 341mm) has density of fauna from different functional groups. We have 13 different functional groups based on other similar studies. The aim was to look at the effect of climate change in the Arctic on the biology of the seafloor.

Funding was provided by the NERC Changing Arctic Oceans ChAOS project.
