Objectives1. To identify and quantify the fate of river-borne nutrients entering the Wash and Humber estuary, examining nutrient distributions from the river inputs through to the North Sea.
2. To measure environmental parameters relevant to phytoplankton growth and nutrient depletion.
3. To take samples over a grid in the southern North Sea to improve knowledge of the seasonal signal in nutrients, particuarly phosphate.
