AMBER OBSERVATIONS: Meta-data-set Nemunas/Klaipeda

1.) General description of the data set:

The surface water of river Nemunas and the outflow of the lagoon in Klaipeda were sampled for N-uptake experiments. Also samples for nutrients, salinity and oxygen contents, DON and DOC concentrations and δ18O and δ15N of nitrate were taken.
