Description
Biological data originates from the Polish Exclusive Economic Zone of the Baltic Sea including shallow water lagoons. Data has been collected in frame of the Polish Monitoring Programme of the Baltic Sea in frame of the contract with Chief Inspectorate for Environmental Protection. more

This monitoring program has started in 1999. Zoobenthos data will be available for the time series of 1979-2012. Instantly available data regards phytoplankton, zooplankton, zoobenthos and phytobentos individual species, abundance, biomass (wet and dry) as well as chlorophyll a concentration in accordance with HELCOM COMBINE Manual. Samples were collected for number of sampling stations visited usually 5 times a year. The two of them are high frequency stations visited 12 times a year. Zoobenthos and phytobentos data are collected once and twice a year respectively. Station data include geographical coordinates and sampling dates, sampling water depth, layer, bottom substrate coverage etc., and may be supplied with physical parameters: temperature, salinity, oxygen concentration and saturation, pH. Some of the phytoplankton data have been collected along a Ferry-Box route at 6-5 discrete sampling stations
