General
Data set name

OMES-Schelde: Data set on stable C isotope composition (delta13C) of DIC and POM pools in Schelde (1996-1999)

Data holding centreVrije Universiteit Brussels, Faculty of Sciences, Department of Chemistry, Laboratory of Analytical and Environmental Chemistry
CountryBelgium  Belgium
Time period1996-1999
OngoingNo
Geographical area

Scheldt river and estuary

Observations 
Parameters

Particulate total and organic carbon concentrations in the water column; Particulate total and organic nitrogen concentrations in the water column; Nutrient fluxes between the bed and the water column; Total dissolved inorganic carbon (TCO2) concentration in the water column; Temperature of the water column; Stable isotopes in water bodies; Alkalinity, acidity and pH of the water column

Description 
Summary

Organic and inorganic carbon and nitrogen (particulate and dissolved) concentrations, flows, transformations, sources and sinks are studied in the upper estuary, the river Scheldt and the intertidal zones. delta 13C, delta15N and delta18O signatures are used to trace specific sources and processes.
