Abstract:
Historical data are essential for understanding long-term changes in the quality of the marine environment. The 4DEMON project will centralise, integrate and valorise data compiled during expeditions in the BCS over the last four decades, forming an important Belgian scientific heritage. DEMON will focus on data on contaminants, eutrophication and ocean acidification processes.
