A comprehensive database of sediment community oxygen consumption (SCOC) data has been compiled from the literature. These data can be found in table 2.1. in chapter 2 of the phd thesis of Dr. Ir. Jeroen Wijsman. J.H. Andersson also used this database in his PhD thesis (chapter 2). more

In order to study the global range of benthic oxygen fluxes, a comprehensive database of SCOC data from the literature was compiled. Where possible, additional parameters such as water depth, temperature, oxygen concentration of the bottom water and biomass of the macrofauna community were included. This database covers a wide range of marine environments, including estuaries, continental shelf and slope areas, deep-sea basins and abyssal planes.
