During 8 years (before, during and after the storm-surge barrier) phytoplankton was measured at two stations in the Oosterschelde (inner harbour and the estuary, the Netherlands) by Kees Bakker. more

This monitoring took place on a weekly basis during summer and less frequent during winter. In total about 35 samples were taken per year. Around 120 species were identified. Besides species, also environmental parameters, such as temperature, wind, etc.. were measured.
