Continuous acquisition of inorganic and organic carbon and associated parameters at the station Ste Anna, Antwerp [Continue registratie van anorganische en organische koolstof en geassociëerde parameters op het St. Anna station te Antwerpen]
Citation
FRCF project (FNRS 2.4545.02) data-set (http://www.co2.ulg.ac.be/anna.htm)

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

Description
This dataset is the result of continous measurements of surface pCO2, salinity and water temperature in the maximum turbidity zone of the Scheldt estuary, at Ste Anna Station, located in Antwerp. This monitoring takes place in the framework of a project that started in january 2002 more

This dataset is the result of continous measurements of surface pCO2, salinity and water temperature in the maximum turbidity zone of the Scheldt estuary, at Ste Anna Station, located in Antwerp. Weekly sampling is carried out for the determination of dissolved oxygen, Total Alkalinity, Total Suspended Matter (TSM), Chlorophyll a, Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC), as well as dissolved inorganic and organic nutrients, such as: Total Phosphorus (TP), Total Dissolved Phosphorus (TDP), Phosphate and Dissolved organic Phosphate (PO4/DOP), Total Particulate Phosphorus (TPP), Total Particulate Inorganic Phosphorus (TPIP), Dissolved Silica (DSi), Biogenic Silica (Bsi) and Dissolved Nitrogen (NO3/NO2/NH4). This monitoring takes place in the framework of a project that started in january 2002. More information on this project can be found on http://www.vliz.be/imis/imis.php?module=project&proid=1490.
