Description 
Summary

The FIMR nutrients data is mainly measured during cruises in the Baltic Sea. The data bank includes the data for the Helcom Baltic Monitoring Programme (BMP). Data contains water bottle profiles mainly from standard depths. Number of stations is about 23000 in 2003. For the Baltic Monitoring Programme (BMP, new version is called COMBINE Programme) data are collected during three or four annual cruises. Helicopter is used for BMP data collecting when the sea is ice covered. Other cruises are determined yearly and are connected to specific projects. The data has been checked. All the parameters are accredited (EN ISO/IEC 17025).
