  1. Columns 1 and 5: cruise years. Columns 2 and 6: number of samples per cruise. Curved brackets indicate the number of additional sampling passes (48-h sampling) on station 40. Columns 3 and 7: gear used (Dtp = Digital temperature probe; CTD = CTD probe; RCM = RCM9 probe). Columns 4 and 8: range of water body where measurement was taken (su surface, sed sediment, wc water column). Box brackets indicate where only a minor part of stations was probed (1995 sed—11:37; 1999 su—15:37)
