Ammonium and ammonia concentration parameters in water bodies; Air pressure; Air temperature; Cloud cover height and extent; Chlorophyll pigment concentrations in water bodies; Dissolved oxygen parameters in the water column; Wind strength and direction; Nitrate concentration parameters in the water column; Phosphate concentration parameters in the water column; Salinity of the water column; Dissolved total and organic nitrogen concentrations in the water column; Dissolved total or organic phosphorus concentration in the water column; Nitrite concentration parameters in the water column; Alkalinity, acidity and pH of the water column; Silicate concentration parameters in the water column; Temperature of the water column
One of the main objectives of the BMP-HELCOM is the observation of changes taking place in the marine environment, particularly resulting from human activity. The data were collected during seasonal monitoring cruises with research vessels every year and during special investigations (particularly combined with the monitoring programme). The data has been quality controlled. Data from simultaneous sampling for biological parameters are stored in BIOMAD at the Department of Systems Ecology.
