Description
SeaWatch-B dataset (in Dutch) for the period of June 2014 to June 2018. more

At a regular basis (seasonally) a range of variables are measured at the beach according to a standardized protocol. Measurements of the coastal water will include temperature. At the beach, counts can be made of lug worms, common limpet, jellyfish, marine litter as well as human activities. Sampling of fish and crabs by means of a small fishing net is part of the program as well.

Scope
Themes:
Biology > Benthos, Biology > Ecology - biodiversity, Biology > Fish, Biology > Plankton, Biology > Plants, Coastal studies (e.g. shores, estuaries)
