Description
Collection of datasets on pollution (water, sediment, biota) sampled as part of the"Project Sea" research activities. The data are digitized from technical reports in the frame of the 4DEMON project. more

The dataset contains information on contaminants (pesticides, heavy metals and micro-organisms) measured in the framework of "Project Sea" (1970-1976), the first Belgian marine research program in the Belgian Continental Shelf (BCS).

* Institut d'Hygiène et d'Epidémiologie, Ministère de la Santé publique, de la Famille et de l'Environnement (IHE)

* Laboratoire de Chimie Analytique (ULG)

* Laboratorium voor Analytische Scheikunde (VUB)

* Laboratorium van Farmacognosie, Fytochemie en Toxicologie (VUB)
