Description 
Summary

The general aim of the project is to determine the potential impact of sand and gravel extraction activities in the Belgian coastal zone. The project involves geological, biological and chemical aspects. The data set describes the chemical aspects. Sampling stations include the main extraction sites, potential extraction sites, sludge dumping sites and reference (unimpacted) stations.
