During the expeditions of the e-learning projects Expeditie Zeeleeuw and Planet Ocean, high school students come on board the research vessel and are introduced to the marine life of the Belgian part of the North Sea (BCP). Four days long, the water column and bottom of the BCP are sampled, respectively with beam trawl or otter trawl and a Van Veen grab. All samples are processed on board. more

Data are available for the years 2006-2008-2009-2012-2013. In 2010-2011, expeditions were organised in collaboration with guest-scientists. The data collected during these expeditions were part of specific scientific research (mostly PhD's) and are not available here.
