  Name: Continuous Plankton Recorder Survey
  Abbreviation: CPR
  Description: Continuous Plankton Recorder dataset is unique in having comparable data on the geographical distribution, seasonal cycles and year-to-year changes in abundance of plankton over a large spatial area. There is no other survey in the world with 80 years of marine plankton data. The CPR Survey's marine monitoring programme has been collecting data from the North Atlantic and the North Sea on the ecology and biogeography of plankton since 1931, and the North Pacific since 1999. Currently there are plans to expand the survey into new seas and to provide a central data repository for all CPR surveys around the globe providing Global CPR dataset
