Poster Number:  396 Presenter/Primary Author:  Michael Landry 15N isotopic compositions of zooplankton species in the California Current Ecosystem (CCE) vary over interannual and decadal scales of climate variability, but the extent to which those

Pelagic community responses to a deep-water front in the California Current Ecosystem: The CCE A-Front Study

Poster Number:  386 Presenter/Primary Author:  Michael Landry In October 2008, we investigated pelagic community composition and biomass, from bacteria to fish, across a sharp frontal gradient overlying deep waters south of Point Conception, California.
