Description
Meiobenthos data, as well as data on water parameters and sediment parameters, was gathered at 8 stations along the Turkish Black Sea coast, during 12 sampling events, at 2 depths (3 and 10m). All data is restricted. more

Meiobenthos data was gathered at 8 stations along the Turkish Black Sea coast, during 12 sampling events, at 2 depths (3 and 10m). Samples were collected by scuba diving, using a sediment tube corer. The following taxa could be observed: Nematoda, Harpacticoida, Polychaeta, Foraminifera (soft-shelled), Bivalvia, Ostracoda, Turbellaria, Oligochaeta, Ciliophora, Gromia and Nauplia. In addition, data on water parameters (temperature, salinity, conductivity, pH, dissolved oxygen, nitrate, nitrite, phosphate, silicate and total dissolved solids) and data on sediment parameters (pH, water content, porosity, granule size, organic matter content and redox conditions) were gathered. All data is restricted.
