Description
List of all species (benthos, zooplankton, phytoplankton) observed during the Belgica cruise in the Artic Ocean (Greenland Sea) between June and August 1905. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: de Gerlache de Gomery, A.; Helland-Hansen, B.; Koefoed, E.; Broch, H. (1907). Journal des stations: compte rendu, par station, des observations océanographiques, in: (1907). Duc d'Orléans. Croisière océanographique accomplie à bord de la Belgica dans la Mer du Grönland 1905. pp. 125-272. more

The first part of the dataset contains a detailed species list (including used sampling gear and time of sampling) for each station. In the second part some hydrographic parameters (temperature, atmospheric pressure, salinity and chlorinity) are listed for the sampling stations.

Scope
