AMORE II: Advanced modelling and research on eutrophication: linking eutrophication and biological resources: nutrients, chlorophyll a and densities of phyto-and zooplankton in the Belgian coastal zone (2003-2006)
Contact: Laboratoire d'Écologie des Systèmes Aquatiques (ULB-ESA), more

Access data

AMORE-II research focus on establishing quantitative and qualitative links between nutrient enrichment, spreading of high-biomass algal blooms (Phaeocystis globosa but also the co-occurrent diatom Guinardia delicatula), presence of gelatinous zooplankton (the dinoflagellate Noctiluca Scintillans, the appendicularian Oïkoploira dioica) and impact on ecosystem function. more

Dataset on nutrients, chla measurements and densities of phyto-and zooplankton sampled at several stations in the Belgian part of the North Sea.
