        abstract:  The Aerial Survey data in this accession was collected in Kasegaluk Lagoon and Beaufort Sea between January 1977 and December 1991. Observations were made regarding mammals and birds sighted during the surveys as well as amount of ice cover in the lagoon and open sea. Types of birds, their numbers and sexes were identified. Characteristics, location and extent of ice cover was noted. LGL Ltd. Edmonton, Alberta, Canada collected the data and it was submitted by Dr. Stephen R. Johnson, British Columbia, Canada to NODC.
        purpose:  This dataset is available to the public for a wide variety of uses including scientific research and analysis.

        supplementalInformation:  Note: Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information accurately represents all available information from the legacy database at the time that this description was created. However, proper attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description. To develop more accurate metadata, NCEI reviews metadata for all accessions on an ongoing basis. Points of contact for this data set include: Contact info: Agency: LGL LTD.
