Quantitative and qualitative analysis of phytoplankton species found between 1968-1970 in the North Sea (Belgian part) and measurement of some environmental parameters at the same time.The data were digitized from technical reports in the frame of the 4DEMON project. more

Data were collected during 17 cruises in 1968 and 4 cruises in 1969-1970 from the Belgian coast to Iceland. The dataset contains information about phytoplankton species abundances and their densities for zone 8 (in total 21 stations, sampled between 6 January 1968 and 20 June 1970), which is located in the Belgian part of the North Sea. Additionally several environmental parameters (bottom depth, air and water temperature, and wind force) were measured during the 17 cruises in 1968.
