Biotic observations and environmental measurements for the sampling campaigns in the Scheldt estuary in the context of "Project Sea". The data are digitized from technical reports in the frame of the 4DEMON project. more

The dataset contains information on biota (phytoplankton and bacteriology) and abiota (heavy metals, nutrients, meteo-and hydrological, microbiological aspects of pollution) for the Scheldt estuary in the framework of "Project Sea" (1970-1976), the first Belgian marine research program in the Belgian Continental Shelf (BCS).
