Abstract

Nutrient samples for the Benthic Flux experiments were taken at 4 sites within Plymouth Sound. These were at L4, Cawsand, Jennycliff and Rame Head. The sampling occurred approximately every other month and when the weather conditions allowed. The results are calculated from samples over a 3 year period between July 2008 and May 2011 and data were calculated using the nutrient concentration data provided..
