Black Sea - Eutrophication and Ocean Acidification aggregated datasets 1935/2016 v2018

EMODnet Chemistry aims to provide access to marine chemistry data sets and derived data products concerning eutrophication, ocean acidification and contaminants. The chemicals chosen reflect importance to the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). ITS-90 water temperature and Water body salinity variables have been also included (as-is) to complete the Eutrophication and Ocean Acidification data. If you use these variables for calculations, please refer to SeaDataNet for having the quality flags: . This aggregated dataset contains all unrestricted EMODnet Chemistry data on Eutrophication and Ocean acidification (15 parameters with quality flag indicators), and covers the Black Sea, Sea of Marmara and Sea of Azov with 46616 CDI records. Data were aggregated and quality controlled by 'National Institute for Marine Research and Development 'Grigore Antipa' from Romania. Regional datasets concerning eutrophication and ocean acidification are automatically harvested and resulting collections are aggregated and quality controlled using ODV Software and following a common methodology for all Sea Regions ( When not present in original data, Water body nitrate plus nitrite was calculated by summing up the Nitrates and Nitrites. Same procedure was applied for Water body dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN) which was calculated by summing up the Nitrates, Nitrites and Ammonium. Parameter names are based on P35, EMODnet Chemistry aggregated parameter names vocabulary, which is available at: Detailed documentation is available at: The aggregated dataset can be downloaded as ODV spreadsheet, which is composed of metadata header followed by tab separated values. This worksheet can be imported to ODV Software for visualisation (More information can be found at: ). The original datasets can be searched and downloaded from EMODnet Chemistry Download Service:
