An overview of Southern Ocean zooplankton data: abundance, biomass, feeding and functional relationships

first_imgThere is an enormous amount of data on Southern Ocean (SO) zooplankton, mostly on their distribution with a minority addressing rate processes. This review aims to summarise these data and show where it resides, to assist SO food-web modellers or those with limited specialist knowledge of SO zooplankton. First, a brief overview is provided of the diversity and basic biology of SO zooplankton, with an emphasis on abundance, distribution and feeding. Second, advice is provided on the uses, strengths and limitations of zooplankton data as inputs to SO data compilations or food-web models. Copepods overall comprise >75% of the SO zooplankton biomass (excluding Euphausia superba). Total mesozooplankton biomass density differs little between the Antarctic sectors, but latitudinally it is maximal in the Polar Frontal Zone and declines to the north and south. Those compiling data on numerical density (no. m–2 or no. m–3) need to allow for differences in the extent of identification of early larval stages. Likewise, the time of year, depth of sampling and mesh size of sampler greatly influence the recorded abundance, since the populations can make seasonal vertical migrations and their pulsed reproduction causes great seasonal changes in size structure and abundance. Other issues are specific to polar environments, for example, lipid storage which leads to significantly different length-mass and mass-rate relationships than are reported in global literature compilations. Likewise, stenothermy (narrow temperature tolerance) means that fixed (Q10-type) temperature relationships based on global literature compilations must be applied with great caution in SO-specific studies. Protozoa/micrometazoa (<200 μm) are the main grazers in the SO, since mesozooplankton typically remove <30% of primary production. This emphasises the dominant role of microbial food chains involving small metazoans, relative to the classic short diatom-krill-whale type food chains. Even within regions of abundant krill, copepod production in summer roughly triples that of postlarval E. superba. This fact reflects a large flow of energy through multiple trophic levels, via copepods and their major invertebrate predators such as other predatory copepods, chaetognaths, small omnivorous euphausiids, amphipods up to myctophid fish and birds.last_img read more

Long Island Weather Forecast Calls for 3-6 Inches of Snow

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Valentine’s Day is coming just in time to warm our collective hearts.One day after a light snow sprinkled Long Island, forecasters are warning of more snow and plunging temperatures for the remainder of the week. The National Weather Service in Upton has issued a winter weather advisory for Nassau and Suffolk counties in advance of another snow storm that could dump 3-6 inches of white stuff on the region Tuesday night into Wednesday. The advisory will be in effect from 6 p.m. until noon Wednesday.The weather service said periods of snow could cause travel difficulties.“Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility,” the agency said on its website. “And use caution while driving.”The weather service is also warning of potential flooding along the south shore of Nassau and western Suffolk, with tides three feet above normal. Coastal areas could see “widespread flooding of vulnerable shore roads and/or properties due to height of storm tide,” the agency said.Snow is not expected to start falling until late Tuesday evening and could continue until 10 a.m. Wednesday, possibly disrupting yet another morning commute. Tuesday’s forecast calls for a high near 35 with the wind chill making it feel a few degrees cooler.Wednesday’s high is 39 degrees.The mercury will begin dipping Thursday, especially in the evening, with a low of 18 expected when the sun goes down. There is also a chance of snow Thursday and Friday.The weekend will be brisk. The weather service is predicting a high of 25 degrees on Saturday before the thermometer plunges into single digits in the evening. Valentine’s Day won’t be much better, with temperatures in the teens throughout the day Sunday.last_img read more
