Abundances and densities of phytoplankton species at Flemish (Negenvaam, Buiten Ratel and Oost Dyck) and Western Coastal Banks (Grote Rede) sampled between 1977 and 1978. The data are digitized from technical reports in the frame of the 4DEMON project. more

A total of 650 samples were taken at different depths (0-5-10-15m) at Grote Rede (West1), Negenvaam (West2), Buiten Ratel (West3) and Oost Dyck (West4), part of the Flemish and Western Coastal Banks. The dataset provides information on abundances and densities (cell counts per liter) of some algal phyla and determined phytoplankton species found between 13 October 1977 and 19 October 1978 (5 sampling days in 1977 and 20 in 1978).
