To compare pore-water nutrients, sediment chlorophyll-a and organic matter content among seabed sediments from the Outer and Inner Firth of Clyde and sea lochs.


The proposed survey in March 2018 will revisit a subset of the stations successfully sampled over the course of previous surveys to gain comparable data on nutrient and sediment chlorophyll content between the Inner and Outer Firth, as well as additional information on sediment mixing.

Normal contacts will be maintained with the laboratory.
