Objectives1. To identify and quantify the fate of river-borne nutrients entering the Wash and Humber estuary, examining nutrient distributions and critical processes from the river inputs through to the North Sea in subtidals sediments and overlying water.
2. To measure factors affecting benthic nutrient recycling in subtidal sediments along a transect across the North Sea.
3. To test the deployment and recovery of new COSEDS equipment.
4. To obtain samples over a grid in the southern North Sea to improve knowledge of the seasonal signal in nutrients (particularly phosphate).
