Nutrient analysers== |+|
|−|This article discusses two types of analysers to measure nutrients: a wet chemical analyser and an optical nitrate analyser. A nutrient analyser is an example of an [[oceanographic instrument]] to measure the concentration of certain [[nutrients]] (e.g. nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, phosphate and silicate) [[in situ]]. |+|

|−|Nutrient analysers are [[oceanographic instruments]] to measure the concentration of certain [[nutrients]] [[in situ]]. While most measurements of nutrients are still made by taking water samples for later analysis in the lab a variety of [[in situ]] instruments has become available that automatically measure nutrient concentrations at pre-programmed intervals. These instruments allow a much higher temporal resolution of measurements than what can be achieved by taking samples. |+|
|−|Most of the nutrient analysers are based on proven wet-chemical laboratory analysis methods. In recent years nitrate analysers based on the absorbance of ultraviolet light by nitrate in water have been introduced. Both are discussed in this article. | |

Compendium for Coast and Sea - creating a marine science-policy interface
The Compendium for Coast and Sea is an integrated knowledge document about the socio-economic, environmental and institutional aspects of the coast and sea in Flanders and Belgium. As such, it constitutes a one-stop shop for data and information from the Flemish and Belgian marine and maritime research community and experts. The Compendium for Coast and Sea is an initiative of the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) and was developed in close collaboration with experts from the research community, government, industry and civil society organisations. The first version of the Compendium was launched in 2013, a second edition was presented in 2015.
