Abstract. The coastal waters of the Baltic Sea are subject to high variations in environmental conditions, triggered by natural and anthropogenic causes. Thus, in situ measurements of water parameters can be strategic for our understanding of the dynamics in shallow water habitats. However, research vessels have very limited access to these areas, resulting in scarce availability of physical and chemical information. In this study we present the results of a monitoring program at low water depths (1–2.5m), covering 13 stations along the southwestern Baltic coast. The provided dataset consists of biweekly records for dissolved inorganic nutrient concentrations and continuous readings at 10min interval for temperature, salinity and oxygen content. Data underwent quality control procedures and were flagged respectively. On average, a data availability of >90% was reached for the monitoring period within 2016–2018. The obtained monitoring data reveal great temporal and spatial variabilities of key environmental factors for shallow water habitats in the southwestern Baltic Sea. Therefore the presented information could serve as realistic key data for experimental manipulations of environmental parameters as well as for the development of oceanographic, biogeochemical or ecological models.

Short summary
The water parameters in coastal zones are highly variable, making predictions about its dynamics difficult. Since research vessels have very limited access to shallow waters, in–situ measurements are still scarce. Therefore we designed a monitoring study to record the environmental conditions in shallow waters by using data loggers and the collection of water samples. The data reveals great variabilities of water parameters and could be used to support experimental and modelling approaches.
