MONICOAST: Long-term online measurements of physico-chemical data in Western Gulf of Finland coastal areas, 2017 onwards
Reinikainen, M.; Tvärminne Zoological Station; (2018) MONICOAST: online measurements of physico-chemical data in Western Gulf of Finland coastal areas 2017 onwards

Availability: The data can be made available upon request, please use contact information.

The MONICOAST coastal observatory sends data to an online portal, where you can follow how temperature, salinity, oxygen, pH and turbidity changes in the sea outside Tvärminne Zoological Station on the Hanko peninsula. MONICOAST (MONItoring of COASTal habitats) is about understanding and visualising the impacts of long-term environmental change on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in key habitats. Automatic data loggers are deployed in coastal habitats such as seagrass meadows, bladder wrack belts and mussel beds. These habitats are highly diverse and provide crucial habitats for a wide range of organisms. Nevertheless, information on the natural variability (on a daily, seasonal and interannual scale) as well as the impact of long-term changes in, for example, temperature, salinity, oxygen, pH and turbidity for the functioning of these habitats is lacking.
