The main objective of the studies was to operate a trapping program, utilizing an air plankton retriever and other special collecting devices installed in a WV-2 aircraft of the Pacific Missile Range Facility, based at Pt. Mugu, California, for the purpose of collecting all types of air-borne organisms and particles in the Pacific area. The primary interest was trapping air-borne arthropods to further test the theory of natural air dispersal of arthropods to oceanic islands.
