Shelf-Edge Study (SES) of the Land Ocean Interaction Study (LOIS), Data Available from the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC)
Entry ID: BODC_NERC_LOIS_SES


Summary
Abstract: The Shelf-Edge Study (SES) of the UK Natural Environment Research
Council's (NERC) Land Ocean Interaction Study (LOIS) is devoted to
interactions between the shelf seas and the open ocean. Research
cruises for this component take place on the shelf seas off the west
coast of Scotland and the North Atlantic continental slope as far west
as Rockall.

One objective is to examine the physical processes involved in the
fluxes of dissolved and suspended constituents across the shelf edge
with a special emphasis on organic carbon and nutrients.

Data from these cruises are collated by the British Oceanographic Data
Centre (BODC), quality controlled and processed where necessary. An
on-line database is provided so that LOIS project scientists can
access data of interest.
