Meta-data-set: Groundwater sampling Meschendorf near KŸhlungsborn/ Germany (17.02. and 19.-20.04.2011) SP B4-5


1.) General description of the data set:

Samples for major elements, trace metals, nutrients and stable isotopes (δ18O-H2O, δD-H2O, δ13C-DIC) in sea water and pore water were taken. Seepage rates of a groundwater seep on the beach were measured in-situ. Temperature profiles were also recorded directly on the beach with temperature lances. Pore water samples were obtained via PEEK-lances
