Description
This archive contains the data, scripts, model output and supplementary information to Otero et al. (2022), ‘Spatiotemporal analysis of plankton drivers in the Belgian part of the North Sea. Data, scripts and model output’. This archive contains zooplankton and phytoplankton abundance data, water temperature profile data, and water quality descriptors such as nutrient and pigment concentrations provided by VLIZ in the framework of LifeWatch. Additional water temperature data of the Westhinder station was obtained from Flemish Banks Monitoring Network. All data relates to the Belgian part of the North Sea (2011-2017). The R scripts were written by Viviana Otero and Steven Pint.
