Scottish Coastal Observatory - Stonehaven Site
Samples are collected offshore from Stonehaven using Marine Scotland Science's catamaran, the Temora. The Stonehaven site has many student projects and supplementary projects carried out parallel to the regular monitoring due to its short distance from the Marine Laboratory in Aberdeen. Stonehaven is one of the two full coastal ecosystem monitoring sites in Scotland, the other being Loch Ewe on the west coast. E.g. both sites are being monitored for oceanography, water chemistry, phytoplankton, and zooplankton.
This dataset represents full resolution or high resolution data from the Stonehaven monitoring site.
