- This project involves a monitoring of phytoplankton, microphytobenthos and dissolved organic matter (DOC) in the upper reaches of the Schelde estuary. Phytoplankton will be monitored by means of HPLC and microscopical analyses. Microphytobenthos will be studied using HPLC or fluorometric chlorophyll measurements. DOC will be determined by means of HTCO (TOC 5000).
