Description 
Summary

The project objectives are to follow long-term trends. The project began in 1991 and each year about 20 samples were collected per station. A complete monitoring series is available from station NB1, while at station US5b and F9 the programme were interrupted between July 1992 and July 1993.The data has been quality inspected.

Simultaneous biological sampling is stored in Biomad at the Department of Systems Ecology.
