Dataset Description (Abstract): Field study carried out on two dates 25th September 2014 and 23rd April 2015 on the mudflats at Lytham St. Anne’s, UK (53o43’58”N, 2o57’37”W). Sampling was carried out from 10 points on a 100 m grid. Diatoms were sampled using a variation of the lens tissue method and sediment was sampled using short cores and surface scrapes. Concentrations of some metals in diatoms were related to the position on the mudflat, whilst others were related to sampling date indicating that there may be seasonal controls, such as diatom biomass on metal uptake from the sediment.
Dataset Description (TOC): There are nine .csv files, five files containing data and four accompanying files containing information to explain the data categories. The files are as follows; • LythamSiteCoords.csv Co-ordinates of sample locations used on both sampling dates • FieldMetals.csv Concentration (mg kg-1) data of 14 metals (Al, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, As, Ag, Cd, Sn and Pb), analysed by XSERIES 2 ICP-MS (Thermo Scientific, Germany) for sediment, overlying water, pore water and diatom compartments at each sampling location and supporting information. • MetadataForFieldMetals.csv • FieldLOI.csv Percentage organic matter in sediment (at three depths at each site) measured using the loss on ignition (LOI) method and supporting information. • MetadataForFieldLOI.csv • FieldParticleSize.csv Sediment particle size data measured using a Coulter LS 230 laser granulometer and classified according to the Udden-Wentworth scale • MetadataForFieldParticleSize.csv • CollectionMassField.csv Mass of diatoms (mg) collected from sediment samples in the field and laboratory on both sampling dates • MetadataForCollectionMassField.csv
