Meta-data-set: Groundwater sampling Hel Peninsula/ Poland from 02.11-05.11.09


1.) General description of the data set:

Major elements, trace metals, nutrient data and isotopic data (δ18O-H2O, δD—H2O, δ13C-DIC, δ34S-SO4, δ34S-H2S) of pore water and groundwater seepage and sediments (one site influenced by groundwater, one site not influenced) at Hel peninsula (Puck Bay/Poland). Pore water samples were obtained with groundwater lances at groundwater impacted and less impacted site.

Sampling campaign from 02.11.2009 - 05.11.2009
