Sampling campaign from 27.02.2010 - 01.03.2010/ Poland (Hel Peninsula)


1.) General description of the data set:

Major elements, trace metals, methane and nutrient data of pore water, groundwater seepage and sediments (one site influenced by groundwater, one less influenced) at Hel peninsula (Puck Bay/Poland). Pore water samples obtained with groundwater lances at groundwater impacted and less impacted site. Discrete snow and different well waters were taken for geochemical and stable isotope analyses (δ18O-H2O, δD—H2O, δ13C-DIC) .
