ECOFLAT PH: Molenplaat delta C13 experiment
Herman P. 2001: Molenplaat delta C13 experiment Molenplaat delta C13 experiment. Netherlands Institute of Ecology; Centre for Estuarine and Marine Ecology, Netherlands. Metadata available at

An experiment was conducted in the framework of the ECOFLAT-project. ECOFLAT aims at studying the processes which are important for the carbon and nutrient cycling within a tidal flat ecosystem.
