AMORE III: Combined Effect of Changing Hydroclimate and Human Activity on Coastal Ecosystem Health: phytoplankton species densities, nutrients and chlorophyll a concentrations in the Belgian coastal zone (2007-2009)
Contact: Laboratoire d'Écologie des Systèmes Aquatiques (ULB-ESA), more

Access data

The research project AMORE III addresses the dual control of changing human activity and climate on eutrophication processes in the BCZ and the feedback effect of eutrophication on goods and services provided by the BCZ. As a scientific contribution towards the sustainable use of the BCZ, AMORE III provides new ecological knowledge, technological developments and ecological modeling results and tools. more

Database on chlorophyll-a, phaeophytin-a, suspended solids and nutrient concentrations next to more than 10,000 phytoplankton species densities.
