The Netherlands Indian Ocean Programme (NIOP) studied the effect of the monsoon on the climate system in the northern Indian Ocean. Information on the research themes, scientists involved and instruments used together with most of the basic scientific data gathered from May 1992 until February 1993 is available on a CDRom. It was developed in cooperation with the Netherlands Geosci. Foundation (GOA) and ETI Biodiversity Centre in the Netherlands. Through PANGAEA, data on the abundance of dinoflagellate cysts have been made available.
The Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ) started kom fishing near Texel in the Netherlands in 1959. The main benefits were the insight in the occurrence and the abundance of the various species, the collection of undamaged live fish for experiments at both the Zoological Station and the various universities and the provision of food for the experiments with seals at the Texels Museum (nowadays Ecomare).
This dataset contains macrobenthos data from the Dutch Sector of the North Sea between 2000 and 2001.
Plankton data collected in the framework of Jerico-NEXT JRAP 1. Data were collected using different methods and sensors (fluoroprobe, flow cytometer, phytopam, FRRF, pigment analysis, zooscan).
This dataset contains a taxonomic list of corals found at the Kenyan reefs (i.e. in Nyali, Bamburi South & North, Vipingo, Malindi) during a sampling campaign in November 1990. Corals were collected by snorkeling and SCUBA diving. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Melles, A. (1991). Taxonomic and sclerochronological studies of Kenyan reef corals. MSc Thesis. Vrije Universiteit Brussel: Brussel. 83 pp.
North Sea macrobenthos species density and abundance, measured on a regular grid of stations corresponding with ICES standard stations. All sampling was done in spring 1986.
