Description 
Summary

The data set concerns an in situ experiment. It includes monitoring of heavy metals (in sediments and interstitial water), petroleum hydrocarbons (in sediment), nutrients (in interstitial water), granulometry, biomass, abundance and composition of zoobenthos and meiobenthos in polluted, unpolluted and control sediments. The sampling frequency is monthly. The project was funded by the CEC.
