  • This dataset includes data of plastic litter collected by citizens and students during 12 campaigns that were organised in Crete (Greece) during the period May 2022 – May 2023. The campaigns were organized within the framework of the NAUTILOS Horizon 2020 project. More specifically the number of plastic litter items per category (using the J code List of the EMODnet Chemistry Thematic Lot n°4) was recorded together with information about the location, date, surface area covered, data contributor and some environmental characteristics (sediment, weather, surroundings).

  • The dataset includes time-series of Posidonia oceanica production over ~20 years (1997 -2018) at sixty sites in the Greek Seas. The dataset also include environmental variables for the same sites and time -period (i.e., sea surface temperature, sea surface temperature of August, Chlorophyll a, Suspended particulate matter, Secchi depth)

  • These data were collected during the period of 27/11/2020 and 18/11/2022 from the Heraklion Coastal Buoy station North of Crete. The dataset is comprised of samples collected and analysed under specific dates from this station while being part of the European project: "JERICO S3 (Joint European Research Infrastructure of Coastal Observatories: Science, Service, Sustainability)".

  • Coastal marine sediments receive intensive stress from urbanization and industrialization, which is manifested by increased contents of heavy metals and organic pollutants. Saronikos Gulf and the small embayment of Elefsis, stretch along the coast of the greater Athens and Pireaus port, the most urbanized and industrialized areas in Greece. Here we present the data of a 20-years geochemical record on grain-size, organic carbon, and major and trace elements contents of the Saronikos Gulf sediments. A total of 216 sediment samples were collected within the period of 1999 to 2018 from the four sub-sectors of the gulf, namely, the Elefsis Bay, the Inner, Outer, and Western (Megara and Epidavros basin) Saronikos Gulf. Additionally, at least one core was obtained from each sub-sector. Sediments deposited at pre-industrial periods were recognized by 14C and 210Pb datings, and served for establishing regionalized, background levels of metals. Factor analysis was conducted to reveal the inter-parametric relationships, thus their common sources, as well as transport and deposition pathways. Then, Enrichment Factors and the multi-elemental Modified Pollution Index (MPI) were calculated to assess the current environmental status of the sediments. Data of sampling sites with at least a five-year record, were assessed for temporal trends, to explore whether sustained, increasing or decreasing trends of the MPI are observed. The dataset and analyses presented here support the research article entitled Geochemistry of major and trace elements in surface sediments of the Saronikos Gulf (Greece): assessment of contamination between 1999 and 2018 by Karageorgis A.P., Botsou F., Kaberi H., and Iliakis S.,

  • PERSEUS Project Nutrients and DO2 Data in North Aegean Sea 2013

  • KRIPIS Project Nutrients, Dissolved Oxygen and Chlorophyll-A data in Aegean and Ionian Sea, 2014-2015

  • Study of quality composition of excavated products in the area of the Floisvos with the aim of their disposal to the marine recipient.

  • Study to assess the quality of the removed dredges infront of the central pier in Volos port. And the possible effects they will have on the marine ecosystem, in case of their disposal.

  • Study to assess the quality of the excavated materials in Syggrou, Athens. And the possible effects they will have on the marine ecosystem, in case of their disposal.

  • Study to assess the quality of the removed dredges from the coastal area in Volos port. And the possible effects they will have on the marine ecosystem, in case of their disposal.
