Structure of these pages

On these pages it is possible to select data from different topics as hydrochemistry, CTD, plankton and so on. The topic is on the menu to the left leading to a main page for the topic. On that page there are links to the selection on data in the bottom.

It is possible to select data from one or more stations in a period from one month to several years.

The stations are given with name and location (in Danish). Their places in the Danish waters is shown on maps for the different topics.

Then one or more parameters is selected and an ascii-file with semicolon separated values is produced.

The resulting ascii-file can be downloaded and used in spreadsheets.
