75 Station PatternCalCOFI's standard station pattern since 1984 includes 66 stations from San Diego to Pt Conception (Lines 93.3 to 76.7).  Nine additional coastal ~20m SCCOOS stations were added July 2004.  Thirty-eight additional stations off central and northern California are typically scheduled during winter and spring cruises, time and weather-permitting (Lines 73.3 to 60.0).   A 73 station pattern (eg CalCOFI 1108NH) drops SCCOOS stations 91.7 26.4 & 85.4 35.8 when ship time is limited. These stations require the ship divert off the typical transects. (click thumbnail for larger image)
