Dataset specification

  • Title: MarineBasis Nuuk - Water column - Phosphate Concentration (µmol/L)
  • Description: Monthly measurements of the concentration of phosphate (PO4). Concentrations were measured spectrophotometrically. Water column:Water column MarineBasis Nuuk:The MarineBasis programme collects physical, chemical and biological data from the Greenland coastal zone. Work is focused around three fjord systems, all influenced by glaciers connected to the Greenland Ice Sheet.
