Abstract:

The report contains a collection of scientific papers from two successive marine ecological baseline cruises to the Western Beaufort Sea August-September, 1971 and 1972. Preliminary results of the physical, chemical, biological, and geological data are presented and interpreted. The results indicate that the data were collected in a marine ecosystem that is still in a relatively unpolluted state. The data should provide a base for assessing the affects of pollution from future development, especially from petroleum.
