Meta-data-set: Groundwater sampling Hel Peninsula/ Poland from 05.05 - 08.05.2010


1.) General description of the data set:

Major elements, trace metals, radium and nutrient data of sea water, pore water and groundwater seepage and sediments (one site influenced by groundwater, one less influenced) at Hel peninsula (Puck Bay/Poland). Additionally seepage rates were measured by seepage meters. Pore water samples obtained with groundwater lances on groundwater impacted, less impacted and not impacted sites. One well water sample was taken for isotopic and geochemical analyses (δ18O-H2O, δD-H2O, δ13C-DIC).
