Description 
Summary

The MOB-dataset contains an amalgam of data from the extensive sampling surveys carried out during the construction of the seaport of Zeebrugge. In all, 1358 sites were sampled. The sites have been sampled according to various sampling schemes: along profiles, according a regular sampling grid, or scattered. Granulometrical data are included from 16 separate subsets, starting from Ostend and reaching to the Dutch foreshore. The data are stored together with date, time and location (geographic or UTM-coordinates).
