Drammensfjord recolonization study


Occurrence data of living benthic foraminifera (>125µm) from Drammensfjorden, collected in 1984 and 1988. The research project was undertaken by the Department of Geociences, University of Oslo and focused on recolonization patterns after a period of nearly permanent anoxic bottom water conditions and the seasonal stability of the assemblages after recolonization in Drammensfjorden. Samples were taken with a gravity corer and data represent the occurrence of living benthic foraminifera in the upper sediment centimeter (0-1cm) .
