attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String This dataset has measurements of the size of selected animal species at selected locations in the Channel Islands National Park. Sampling is conducted annually between the months of May-October, so the Time data in this file is July 1 of each year (a nominal value). The size frequency measurements were taken within 10 meters of the transect line at each site. Depths at the site vary some, but we describe the depth of the site along the transect line where that station's temperature logger is located, a typical depth for the site.
