|Data holding centre||Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom|
|Time period||From 1928 to 1987|
Station E1 (50° 02'N, 4° 22'W), offshore from Plymouth, western English Channel; other stations across the Channel for part of the period
Nitrate concentration parameters in the water column; Phosphate concentration parameters in the water column; Salinity of the water column; Temperature of the water column; Nitrite concentration parameters in the water column; Phytoplankton taxonomic abundance in water bodies; Silicate concentration parameters in the water column
Nutrient analysers; plankton nets; discrete water samplers; salinity sensor
Water bottle samples were taken six to seven times a year between 1928 and 1987 at Station E1 (50° 02'N, 4° 22'W), offshore from Plymouth, for obtaining the following data: temperature, salinity, phosphate, nitrate, silicate and phytoplankton (species counts). Data were also collected at other stations in the English Channel for part of the period.
