Observations 
Parameters

Nitrate concentration parameters in the water column; Nitrite concentration parameters in the water column; Concentration of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the water column; Phosphate concentration parameters in the water column; Primary production in the water column; Concentration of polychlorobiphenyls (PCBs) in the water column; Salinity of the water column; Silicate concentration parameters in the water column; Raw suspended particulate material concentration sensor output; Concentration of other organic contaminants in the water column

Instruments

Nutrient analysers; discrete water samplers; salinity sensor

Description 
Summary

The project comprised a study of turbidity and primary production in the water column. The relationship between the concentration of main pollutants and primary production to different values of salinity and nutrients was also investigated.
