Historical data collected by De Pauw in 1967-1968-1969 for a physico chemical, bacteriological and planctonic research on the Westerscheldt estuary.The data were digitised by UA, Ecobe in the frame of the OMES project. more

13 hours cycles in 1967 at Antwerpen-Steen, Zandvlietsluce and Temse, in 1968 at Kruibeke and the Boudewijnsluce, in 1969 at Doel and Antwerpen-Schijn. Monthly sampling 1967-1969.
