Information and inventories
These tools allow you to search inventories, catalogues and directories maintained by BODC. You can find information describing all data sets either held by or known to us.
Biological and chemical data
An illustration of our biological and chemical data coverage is provided to enable you to see the data we hold. These data are available by request from the BODC Enquiries Officer. A limited amount of data collected by biological sensors, such as optical plankton counters or fluorometers, in time or depth series are now available for online delivery via our all data series facility.
