Details of SIGNAL_cruise2


Dataset identification

Title of datasetSIGNAL_cruise2
Narrative summary of datasetThe SIGNAL research project, funded by the BiodivERsA call of the ERA-Net, focuses on the effects of extreme weather events on biodiversity, ecosystem functions, resilience and tipping points in grasslands along a pan-European climatic gradient. Studying the effects of extreme drought on biodiversity and ecosystem functions is a key facet of current climate change research.
Summary of processing methodologyStation grid sampled with CTD and water bottles, Grab sampler from sediment and net tows for zooplankton for PAK and stable isotopes
