Name
North Sea Biogeochemical Climatology (Version 1.0)
Acronym
NSBClim_v1.0
Project(s)
NSBC (North Sea Biogeochemical Climatology)
Summary
This is the first version of a biogeochemical climatology in the wider North Sea region. It is an expansion of the NOWESP data base („North Western European Shelf Programme“; Laane et al., 1996) and the KLIWAS North Sea Climatology of Hydrographic Data (Bersch et al., 2013). The data collection comprises observations of the parameters ammonium, chlorophyll-a, nitrate(+nitrite), phosphate, oxygen and silicate for the time period 1960-2014. If accompanying the biogeochemical parameters, temperature and salinity were also included in the collection.
