Description
Between 2007 and 2010, environmental variables were measured in both water and sediment at the INRAM sampling stations, which were located in the Scheldt estuary, Belgian coastal waters and Belgian coastal harbours. more

Environmental variables were measured in water and sediment at the INRAM sampling locations. Water samples were taken with a Niskin or Go Flo bottle. The sediment was sampled with a Van Veen grab.

Scope
Themes:
Biology, Bottom samples (e.g. core, dredge, grab), Water composition > Suspended matter - turbidity
