Description
The effect of oxygen on the degradation of sedimentary organic matter has been determined for 6 subtidal stations and 3 intertidal stations in the North Sea area. The stations were selected to cover a range of organic matter lability and sediment texture (and hence concentrations of organic matter).

Scope
Themes:
Biology > Organic (& bio-) chemistry, Biology > Pigments (e.g. chlorophyll)
Keywords:
Marine, ANE, Germany, German Bight, ANE, Netherlands, Frisian Front, ANE, Skagerrak

Geographical coverage
ANE, Germany, German Bight [Marine Regions]
ANE, Netherlands, Frisian Front [Marine Regions]
ANE, Skagerrak [Marine Regions]

Temporal coverage
August 1994 - November 1995

Parameters
Chlorophyll a, Macrobenthos biomass, Median grain size, suspended, Total organic carbon (TOC)
