Summarising spatial and temporal information in CPR data

Beare, D.J. and Batten, S.D. and Edwards, M. and McKenzie, E. and Reid, P.C. and Reid, D.G. (2003) Summarising spatial and temporal information in CPR data. Progress in Oceanography, 58 (2-4). pp. 217-233. ISSN 0079-6611

Abstract

The Continuous Plankton Recorder survey provides pan-oceanic data on geographic distribution, species composition, seasonal cycles of abundance, and long-term change during the last 70 years. In this paper we compare and contrast some of the historic data-analytic protocols of the survey, focusing primarily on the various means by which spatio-temporal information in CPR data has been exposed. Relative strengths and limitations are assessed, followed by suggestions for future approaches to the visualisation and summarising of CPR data.
