Dear Coral listers, 

During our coral reef conservation project in East Kalimantan in 
early 1998 we took water samples from reefs in our project area North 
of Balikpapan and had them analysed for a quite large range of 
parameters: Dissolved oxygen, Salinity, Total Carbon, Total Inorganic 
Carbon, pH value, Conductivity, Nitrate, Sulphate, Phosphate, 
Alkalinity, Water Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids, Total Suspended 
Solids, Metals: Mg, K, Na, Ca, Fe, Co, Pb, Ni, As, Cd, and Hg.

We are now in the process of analysing these data.  I have been 
through the primary literature to find a similar data set in the 
region (Indonesia but preferrably East Borneo) to use as comparative 
data, but with no great success.  Does anyone have such a dataset in 
grey literature or knows contacts I could approach?

Thanks a lot.
