Quantitative and qualitative analysis of phytoplankton species found between 1968-1970 in the North Sea and Northeast Atlantic Ocean. The data were digitized in the frame of the 4DEMON project and LifeWatch. more

Data were collected during 17 cruises in 1968 and 4 cruises in 1969-1970 from the Belgian coast to Iceland. The dataset contains information about phytoplankton species abundances and their densities for 17 campaigns (in total 136 stations) in 1968 and 4 campaigns (32 stations) sampled between 3 January 1968 and 20 June 1970. Additionally several environmental parameters (air and water temperature, wind force) were measured during the 17 cruises in 1968.
