Electrical conductivity of the water column; Chlorophyll pigment concentrations in water bodies; Nitrate concentration parameters in the water column; Phosphate concentration parameters in the water column; Salinity of the water column; Temperature of the water column; Radioactivity in water bodies; Stable isotopes in water bodies; Zooplankton taxonomy-related biomass expressed as nitrogen per unit volume of the water column; Zooplankton non taxonomy-related biomass expressed as nitrogen per unit volume of the water column; Nitrite concentration parameters in the water column; Silicate concentration parameters in the water column
Nutrient analysers; discrete water samplers; mass spectrometers; liquid scintillation counters; CTD undulators; CTD; satellite positioning systems
The data set comprises a set of nine cruises following a track covering the whole of the North Sea. Continuous underway measurements were made and station work carried out at intervals. Productivity data (from 15N and 14C incubations), chlorophylls and carbon-hydrogen-nitrogen analyses are available for five cruises (January, April and August 1990, April 1991, February 1992).
