Results are reported for the analysis of water samples taken from the E1 long-term sampling station (50 02.6'N; 4 22.5'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 2002, and since 2007 has been on a more regular almost fortnightly sampling protocol, however due to the more "offshore" nature of the site there are many sampling weeks lost due to bad weather. A classical picture is seen of generally summer nutrient depletion and with higher winter of the Nitrate, Silicate and Phosphate.
