Abstract:

The results of analyses of hydrographic, nutrient, and biological data collected in coastal ocean waters off Central California in January and February 2009 aboard the RV Western Flyer and RV Point Sur are presented in both tabular and graphical form. Both cruises departed from and returned to Moss Landing, California. Hydrographic stations were completed from Moss Landing, CA, along CalCOFI Line 67 to station 90, and from Drakes Bay along CalCOFI Line 60 to station 60. Nutrient and biological data were not collected along CalCOFI line 60 RV Point Sur cruise. Marine mammal observations were maintained throughout the RV Western Flyer cruise, and the results of those observations are presented here also.
