Harpacticoid copepod community structure in the Western Scheldt and Ems-Dollard estuary in relation to pollution between 1976 and 1980

Data on biotic parameters of harpacticoid copepods and abiotic parameters related to pollution for samples taken between 1976 and 1980 in the Westerschelde-and Eems-Dollard estuary. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Van Damme, D.; Heip, C.H.R.; Herman, R.; Vaeremans, M. (1981). Harpacticoid copepod community structure in two North Sea estuaries in relation to pollution. Benthos 81/06. Rijksuniversiteit Gent, Laboratorium voor Morfologie en Systematiek der Dieren, Sectie Mariene Biologie: Gent. 58 pp. First part contains data on all Harpacticoida species with corresponding density and biomass for samples collected between 1976 and 1980 in the Westerschelde and the Eems-Dollard. The second part consists of a sediment analysis (composition) with special emphasis on pollution (trace metal concentrations and nutrients).
