Description
We provide datasets that include parameters regarding phytoplankton community, primary production and chl a measurements. Chlorophyll a concentrations analysis started from 1972 till 2017 and included coastal and open waters stations. Phytoplankton community analysis consist of datasets started from 1952-2017 while primary production measurements were obtained from 1962. more

Datasets were gained from projects Vir- Konavle started from 1976. This project included coastal stations along Middle and South Adraitic and was performed seasonaly. National monitoring programe Jadran started 1998 and among coastal stations, measurements were performed at open waters (three transects across Adriatic). The project was active till 2012. Operational and regulatory monitoring of transitional and coastal waters of 2014-2018 is ongoing project. Primary production has been measured monthly form 1962 on two station in coastal and open waters.
