Title: Biological processes in the water column of the south Atlantic bight: Zooplankton responses: Progress report

The studies on which we report in the following segments represent interdisciplinary efforts to understand interactions of physical, chemical and biological processes on the southeastern continental shelf of the USA. The Georgia Bight Experiment was designed to determine the physical forces responsible for upwelling on the northeastern Florida and Georgia shelf during summer, trajectories and fate of those upwellings, and major chemical and biological processes therein. 5 refs.
