Results are reported for the analysis of water samples taken from the L4 long-term sampling station (50 15.0'N; 4 13.0'W) situated of the south-west coast of England, United Kingdom. The analyses are reported for Nitrate+Nitrite, Nitrite, Silicate and Phosphate concentrations. The data set begins in 2000 and since 2007 has been on a more regular almost weekly sampling protocol. A classical picture is seen of generally summer nutrient depletion and with higher winter of the Nitrate, Silicate and Phosphate, however particularly in wet summers like 2012 there is a big influence of the River Tamar and spikes of high nutrient loads are seen being introduced into this near-shore sampling site.
