Qualitative and quantitative composition and spatial distribution of the zooplankton community for 32 stations sampled on 18-19 April 1978 in the Belgian part of the North Sea.The data are digitized from technical reports in the frame of the 4DEMON project. more

Dataset contains data on densities (number of individuals per unit volume of the water) of the most abundant zooplankton taxa found on 32 stations during a 3-day sampling campaign on 17-18-19 April 1978 in the Belgian part of the North Sea. For each unique eventID individual copepoda species belonging to the orders Calanoida, Cyclopoida or Harpacticoida were identified and their individual density was noted. For each station environmental parameters such as salinity, temperature and chlorophyll a concentration were measured.
