Description
Qualitative and quantitative analysis of micro- and nannoplankton found between 1970 and 1972 in Belgian coastal waters near Nieuwpoort. The data were digitized from technical reports in the frame of the 4DEMON project. more

Examination of the qualitative and quantitative composition of the micro-and nannoplankton community in coastal waters near Nieuwpoort-Lombardsijde. 9 stations were sampled monthly during 2 years (23 campaigns between 12 May 1970 - 16 May 1972). The dataset describes overall species richness and species were classified in 6 density classes according to the number of cells per liter. Numerical productivity is given for following taxa: Ciliata, Centrales, Pyrrophyta, Nannoflagellata and Pennales. Total plankton biomass was calculated depending on average plasma volumes of the cells. Chlorophyll a concentration was determined spectrophotometrically for 108 samples.
