Time periodFrom 1942 onwards
OngoingYes
Geographical area

Prosperpolder (Dutch-Belgian border) and Oosterweel (Antwerp)

Observations 
Parameters

Salinity of the water column; Raw temperature and/or salinity instrument output

Description 
Summary

Temperature and conductivity are measured at 6 minutes intervals and the data stored on data cartridges. Both parameters make it possible to compute salinity and chlorinity. The data are thereafter transferred to diskettes. Before 1987, the recording was mostly on paper rolls. Ten-days, monthly and annual averages, at high water and low water, are compiled in reports.
