Description 
Summary

Data from 50 surveillance coastal stations visited during one year of the River Basin Districts and from 30 operational coastal stations visited yearly. Seasonal frequencies 1-4 times a year for physicochemical parameters, 2 for phytoplankton, once a year for benthic macroinvertebrates and macroalgae. The project is the implementation of the WFD 2000/60 EC Directive in coastal waters of Greece.
