Environmental impact assessment of oil pollution accident in Gialova lagoon and Navarino Bay
National Project on the consequences of the Navarino Oil spill, in 1994. A data set of benthic brackish water invertebrates from Gialova lagoon (SW Pelopponese), Ionian Sea, Greece, collected on four sampling periods between April 1995 and March 1996. Includes seven sampling stations, each with five replicates for abundance counts for each sampling period and also biomass (dry weight and ash-free) for each station/sampling period. A set of 18 environmental variables, including temp, pH, Rdx, particulate organic matter, dissolved oxygen, salinity, chlorophyll-a, were also measured for each sampling station-sampling period combination.
The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 168 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
