The aim of this project is a one-year monitoring of phytoplankton and microphytobenthos in the Zeeschelde, the upper part of the Schelde estuary. 12 stations situated between Gent and the Dutch-Belgian border and 4 major tributaries will be sampled monthly. Phytoplankton will be quantified using HPLC pigment analyses and microscopic cell counts. Microphytobenthos will be monitored using HPLC pigment analyses.
