As so many of the Scottish west coast sea-lochs, Loch Creran
is a submerged, glacially overdeepened river valley. It is situated
just north of Oban and has been the subject of intensive study
by the Scottish Marine Biological Association over the last fifteen
years. It consists of two basins separated from the Firth of Lorne
by a narrow entrance channel and divided by a narrow shallow sill
at Creagan (Figure 1).
This report presents temperature, salinity and chlorophyll
data collected during the course of a study on the ecology of Dinoflagellates
in Loch Creran in 1983.
