Particulate geochemistry of sediment core AL534/2_7-7 (MIC11)


This dataset consists of the results particulate matter geochemical analyses of sediment cores that were taken during the cruise AL534/2 in March 2020. The research areas were the coastal waters close to major river mounds off the coasts of Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Great Britain, the Netherlands and Germany. During this cruise, samples were collected for the JPI Oceans project HOTMIC. The research objective of HOTMIC is the investigation of distribution and transport of microplastic particles from the European coast to the garbage accumulations in the North Atlantic gyre. Sediment samples were taken with a mini multi corer and, in one case, with a mini box corer. Particulate organic carbon and nitrogen, total sulfur and CaCO3 contents of the solid phase were determined with an elemental analyzer.
