Access data
Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

Abundance of phytoplankton species and related environmental datafrom Ostend to Island. 25 zones were sampled during 17 cruises between December 1970 and December 1971. The data were digitized from technical reports in the frame of the 4DEMON project. more

Dataset on densities of phytoplankton species and corresponding environmental parameters (nutrients, pH, alcalinity, temperature, wind force and depth). In or adjacent to the Belgian part of the North Sea (zone 24 and 25) 34 stations were sampled during 1 year (05 December 1970 - 04 December 1971).
