Description
This research project contributes to the implementation of an integrated land-coastal zone research methodology to assess and predict the eutrophication level of the coastal North Sea and the associated undesirable effects. The ultimate aim is to reduce the current context of uncertainty in which decisions to counteract the eutrophication of the North Sea and protect its natural resources are made. more

Database on densities of Diatoma and Phaeocystis globosa species, pigment and nutrient concentrations, and measurement of secchi depth.
