An integrated ecological investigation of Saronicos Gulf, Aegean sea, was made with the objective of studying the phytoplanktonic populations of the area in connection with the detection and quantitation of species indicators of sewage pollution. The data used comprise the results of thirty six surveys made during January - December 1980. Quantitative and qualitative data of phytoplankton populations collected monthly from nine stations are reported.The stations consisted of three transects of three stations each, from inshore to offshore waters.

Data Records

The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 216 records. 2 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

Project Data

The Saronicos gulf project under the title "Phytoplankton Indicators of Sewage Pollution" was organized in 1980 at the Biology Department of the NRC "Demokritos" and financed partially by the "Research and Technology Agency".

Sampling Methods

Phytoplankton samples were collected with a van Dorhn sampler at 1 and 40 m depth. Samples were preserved with Lugol-acetate solution and analysed quantitatively (in number of cells/liter) and qualitatively in an inverted microscope (Utermohl, 1931). Samples for chlorophyll-a determinations were filtered on ship board through MILLIPORE (Type AA) filters, which were treated immediately as described by Strickland and Parsons (1968). Temperature was measured with inverted thermometers. Oxygen determination was carried out shipboard using the Winkler method as suggested by Strickland and Parsons (1968). Salinity was measured in the laboratory on an inductively coupled salinometer (type C.S.I.R.O.). Samples for nutrient analysis were filtered immediately after collection, kept frozen at -20 oC and analysed within the following 2-3 days. Determinations of phosphate, nitrate, nitrite, silicate, organic nitrogen and organic phosphorus were made after Strickland and Parsons (1968). Ammonia was determined by the method of Liddicoat et al.,(1976).
