Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

Description
This dataset contains data on two stations on the Belgian Continental Shelf that are sampled monthly for environmental variables in sediment, suspended matter and water column. more

This dataset contains data on two stations on the Belgian Continental Shelf that are sampled monthly for environmental variables in sediment, suspended matter and water column. The aim of the study is to unravel how food cascades into animal biomass. Detailed research on C-cycling within the benthic food web is performed.
