Description 
Summary

The data were collected within the framework of projects funded by the Municipal Enterprise for Water Supply and Sewerage of Heraklion (Crete Island) during six surveys of RV 'PHILIA'. The main objective of the project was to investigate the environmental impacts of the wastewater treatment plant in the marine area of Heraklion city. Parameters: Macrobenthos taxonomic abundance; Sediment grain size parameters; Concentrations of particulate organic carbon, chlorophyll a and phaeopigments in the sediment and in the water column; temperature and salinity in the water column. Project: Municipal Enterprise for Water Supply and Sewerage of Heraklion (Crete Island).
