  • Environmental survey of coastal and shelf waters Dublin - Galway: Winter nutrients, benthos and contaminants monitoring

    Marine Institute (Marine Institute, 2016)
    The 2016 survey continues the Marine Institute's Winter Nutrients monitoring that commenced in 1990/91. The survey evolved during this time period with respect to target areas, parameters and sampling strategy. In 2011 this survey was re-established as a winter environmental survey with a broader remit to provide supporting information for OSPAR and Water Framework Directive (WFD - Directive 2000/60/EC)assessments and also to maintain the winter time series on key biogeochemical parameters in Irish waters in response to pressures such as land based inputs of nutrients and climate change. Since 2011 the survey circumnavigates the island of Ireland every two years, alternating southabout (odd years) and northabout (even years), starting in the Irish Sea and ending in Galway. The 2016 survey was designed to collect multidisciplinary information on physics, water chemistry (dissolved nutrients, dissolved oxygen, carbonate parameters (TA, DIC), salinity), sediment chemistry (persistent organic pollutants POPs and trace metals)sediment particle size distribution and benthic macroinvertebrates.
  • Environmental survey of coastal and shelf waters- Southabout winter nutrients, benthos and contaminants monitoring

    Marine Institute (Marine Institute, 2015)
    The 2015 survey continues the Marine Institute's Winter Nutrients monitoring that commenced in 1990. The survey evolved during this time period with respect to parameters and sampling strategy.

  • Environmental survey of coastal and shelf waters- Northabout winter nutrients, benthos and contaminants monitoring

  • Environmental survey of coastal and shelf waters- Northabout winter nutrients, benthos and contaminants monitoring

    Marine Institute (Marine Institute, 2012)
    The 2012 survey builds on the MI Winter Nutrients Survey that ran from 1990 to 2011 (except 2010). The survey evolved during this time period with respect to parameters and sampling strategy. The 2012 survey designed to collect multidisciplinary information on physics, water chemistry (dissolved nutrients, dissolved oxygen, carbonate parameters (TA, DIC), salinity), sediment chemistry (persistent organic pollutants POPs and trace metals)sediment particle size distribution and benthic macroinvertebrates.
  • Environmental survey of coastal and shelf waters- winter nutrients

    Marine Institute (Marine Institute, 2011)
    The 2011 survey builds on the MI Winter Nutrients Survey that ran from 1990 to 2009. The survey evolved during this time period with respect to parameters and sampling strategy. The 2011 survey was further expanded to collect multidisciplinary information on physics, chemistry (nutrients, DO, carbonate parameters, salinity)and biology (benthic, macroinvertebrates, winter phytoplankton baseline)of these waters.
