Abstract

EMODnet Chemistry aims to provide access to marine chemistry data sets and derived data products concerning eutrophication, acidity 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 Acidity data. If you use these variables for calculations, please refer to SeaDataNet for having the quality flags: https://www.seadatanet.org/Products/Aggregated-datasets. This aggregated dataset contains all unrestricted EMODnet Chemistry data on Eutrophication and Ocean acidification (14 parameters with quality flag indicators), and covers the Mediterranean Sea with 67271 CDI records (60876 Vertical profiles and 6395 Time series). Vertical profiles temporal range is from 1911-08-17 to 2017-10-25. Time series temporal range is from 1974-06-04 to 2015-12-22. Data were aggregated and quality controlled by "Hellenic Centre for Marine Research, Hellenic National Oceanographic Data Centre (HCMR/HNODC)" from Greece.

Methods

Regional datasets concerning eutrophication and acidity are automatically harvested and resulting collections are aggregated and quality controlled using ODV Software and following a common methodology for all Sea Regions (https://doi.org/10.6092/9f75ad8a-ca32-4a72-bf69-167119b2cc12). 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."
