Description 
Summary

The aim of the international BOSEX, coordinated by the ICES/SCOR Working Group on the Study of the Pollution of the Baltic, was to join together elements of physical, chemical and biological tasks. The data were collected with a research vessel at the central buoy of the BOSEX. Generally the sampling was carried out with a 3 hour time difference with the ships alternating in the work. The data has been quality controlled.
