MONICOAST, developed in the framework of the Horizon 2020 Jerico-Next Transnational Access (TNA) Call, is a collaborative project between the University of Cagliari (UNICA, Italy) and AZTI (Spain), hosted by the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR, Greece). In the framework of the project, SSP and LDPE water passive samplers and PUF air passive samplers were deployed, in 2018-2019, at two buoys (Heraklion Coastal Buoy, HCB; Saronikos Buoy, SB), located in the Mediterranean Sea (Greece), for the measurement of organic compounds.

We acknowledge the funding of the European Commission – H2020 Framework Programme, JERICO NEXT under grant agreement No. 654410 and the analysis performed by the RECETOX Research Infrastructure (LM 2015051 and CZ 021010000160130001761).|
Provided data correspond to polyaromatic hydrocarbon (PAH), polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) and organochlorine pesticide (OCP) concentrations measured in air by PUF passive samplers and in water by SSP and LDPE passive samplers. Additionally, a document has been compiled to provide the photos of the deployment and retrieval of the passive samplers in the buoys. The samplers deployed in the second sampling campaign are still being processed and the dataset will be updated when data are available.The water passive sampling data are provided as freely dissolved concentrations, while those of PUFs are per sampler.
