In summer and , as part of Chukchi Sea Offshore Monitoring in Drilling Area – Chemical and Benthos (COMIDA CAB) program, we performed a quantitative assessment of the biomass, abundance, and community structure of benthic infaunal populations of the Northeastern Chukchi by:   Carey, A.G., Jr.: The distribution, abundance, diversity, and productivity of the western Beaufort Sea benthos.

Recently, a renewed interest in industrial exploration of the Canadian Beaufort Sea has prompted a resurgence of benthic surveys providing a baseline for which to monitor future change. Understanding regional spatial patterns and drivers of benthic abundance and diversity is needed to effectively monitor potential human induced shifts. Diversity, Abundance and Community Structure of Benthic Macro- and Megafauna on the Beaufort Shelf and Slope Article (PDF Available) in PLoS ONE 9(7):e July with Reads. Study area. The Svalbard Bank is a shallow area in the western Barents Sea with a minimum depth of less than 40 m (Fig. 1).It is the largest open-shelf cold-water carbonate platform in the Arctic, built from barnacle sands (Balanus balanus, B. crenatus), mollusk shell fragments (Mya truncata, Hiatella arctica, and Chlamys islandica), and mixed with very coarse sand and gravel (Elverhøi and.   The Barents Sea is among the most productive areas in the world oceans, and its shallow banks exhibit particularly high rates of primary productivity reaching over g C m−2year−1. Our study focused on the Svalbard Bank, an important feeding area for fishes and whales. In order to investigate how benthic community structure and benthic secondary production vary across environmental.

The diversity, abundance and fate of ice algae and phytoplankton in the Bering Sea. and benthic microalgae are the three sources of primary production in the western Beaufort Sea in winter and. In terms of diversity, a reasonable prediction of future change is even more difficult, because (1) it is unclear if and how much the carbon flux to the Arctic deep-sea floor will change, and (2) the unimodal distribution of the productivity-diversity relationship found in many studies does not seem to be generally applicable (e.g., Glover et.
