Description
Phytoplankton and abiotic data for 1971, 1972 and 1973 in the Sluice Dock (Oostende). The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Mommaerts, J.-P. (1978). Systeembenadering van een gesloten marien milieu, met de nadruk op de rol van het fytoplankton. PhD Thesis. VUB: Brussel. 487 [diff. pag.] pp. more

Densities, chla and potential production of phytoplankton and corresponding environmental parameters (nitrates, phosphates and ammonium) were examined and measured at 5 stations which were sampled every week between March 1971 and August 1973.
