Danish Oceanographical expeditions 1908-1910 to the Mediterranean and adjacent seas-PelagicPolychaetes

Latest version published by Hellenic Center for Marine Research on Jun 22, 2016 Hellenic Center for Marine Research

The present historical paper deals with the pelagic Polychaetes except the Tomopterids collected on the cruises of the "Thor", 1908-1910 in the Mediterannenan and adjacent waters. The tables included in this report present also the scientific results from other research vessels such as "Dana" (years 1921 and 1930) and "S/S Pangan" (1911).

Sampling Methods

The majority of the catches were made with "Petersen's Young-fish Trawl" mostly with a diameter of 200cm and 330cm and stramin nets with dimeters of 100, 150 and 200cm: the fishing parts of these consist of stramin, a coarse canvas with abt 20 threads to 3cm. A few samples containing Polychaeta were taken with other apparatus, viz.5 samples with ring-trawl 130cm, 200cm and 300cm in diameter; 2 samples with open conical silk-net 100cm in diameter ;one with Nansen's closing net, 50 cm in diameter and finally one with rectangular dredge opening 27x117 cm

Study Extent Collections are from the Mediterranean and adjacent parts of Atlantic Ocean.
Quality Control The dataset was digitized manually from scanned documents. Original names regarding taxonomy and sampling location were kept as a reference. At the same time taxon names were cross-checked against the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS); while the original sampling coordinates were plotted using Google Earth in order to double check that they are located in the sea. All data were checked for inconsistencies, both for the range of values, but also compared to other datasets from the same series, collected at the same station. Any problematic records were recorded in a remarks field in the data.

Method step description:

  1. Data were digitized by hand, then quality controlled, and published through the MedOBIS IPT installation.
