Short overview of planned datasets

DATA PROVIDER

NAME OF DATASET

DESCRIPTION

KUL; Applied Geology and Mineralogy research group

SSD_QUEST4D_KUL-GEO_sediment

Clay mineral data of recent mud sediments and of their potential source areas

Flemish government-Flanders Hydraulics Research/Waterbouwkundig Laboratorium

SSD_QUEST4D_WLH_sediment

Values of critical erosion shear stress, resulting from measurements on samples of North Sea mud taken in the frame of QUEST4D.

Rough estimation: 10 samples will be taken.

Ugent-Marine Biology Section

SSD_QUEST4D_UGent-MARBIO_various

* MACRODAT database, incl. data on spatio-temporal structure in macrobenthos and granulometry at the BPNS ("old" data) (wordt momenteel beheerd door VMDC (VLIZ)

* Newly collected data on macrobenthos and granulometry within the framework of QUEST4D (new data)

* parameters : macrobenthos, species composition, density, granulometry, grain size distribution (e.g. D50, mud, ...)

KUL-Laboratory on Hydraulics

SSD_QUEST4D_KUL-HYDR_No Data

All of the data that the Hydraulics Laboratory will gather in the framework of QUEST4D will fall under article 5.5 of the contract (= will come from third parties and therefore the project cannot claim ownership).

Management Unit of the North Sea Mathematical Models (MUMM)

SSD_QUEST4D_MUMM_sediment

* grain size distribution; organic matter, POC and CaCO3 content; activity of radioisotopes (210Pb, 137Cs, 226Ra), bulk density of box cores
* primary particle size distribution; organic matter and CaCO3 content of suspended sediments

Management Unit of the North Sea Mathematical Models (MUMM)

SSD_QUEST4D_MUMM_water

Sediment transport : tidal (RV Belgica) and long-term measurements (tripode) of SPM concentration (OBS, transmissometer and filtration), salinity, temperature, pressure/water depth (CTD), current velocity (ADCP, ADV, ADP).

Royal Belgian Institute of natural Sciences , Department of Invertebrates

SSD_QUEST4D_RBINS_biodiversity

Digitalisation of infaunal invertebrates of the collection of Gilson (IRScNB - KBIN, 1899-1910), focusing on the sediment samples collected with the "ground-collector" so as to provide a reference dataset for long-term analysis of macro-benthic communitities

UGent - Renard Centre of Marine Geology (RCMG)

SSD_QUEST4D_Ugent-RCMG_sediment

* grain-size analysis of grab-samples, boxcores or hamon grabs

* results from vibrocore : grain-size and density profiles analysis (partly MESH results, InterregIIIB)

UGent - Renard Centre of Marine Geology (RCMG)

SSD_QUEST4D_Ugent-RCMG_various

multibeam bathymetry and backscatter, side-scan sonar imagery, very-high resolution seismics, video imaging, penetrometer tests (data owned by Belgian Navy)
