        abstract:  The database from the Endicott Environmental Monitoring Program contains oceanographic, meterological, and fisheries data for the Prudhoe Bay region (North Alaska, Beaufort Sea, around 152 degrees W /68 degrees N) from 1985-1987. The Endicott program was implemented by Ebasco Environmental and collected meterological and oceanographic (CTD, currents) data, as well as data related to fisheries, river discharge, coastal sediments, and snow geese program elements. Some of the oceanographic data is related to currents flowing through breaches in the Endicott causeway. Many of the data files are in NODC formats. Data formats were included in the dataset as FORMAT.TXT files. The three format files are: FORMAT85.TXT (925 records), FORMAT86.TXT (1763 records), and FORMAT87.TXT (2542 records). The format for 1988 fish overwintering data is also in FORMAT87.TXT. 10 diskettes of data were submitted by Peter G. Hummer 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, the NODC reviews metadata for all accessions on an ongoing basis.
