Diversity and composition of benthic diatom algae and ciliates were studied at several beaches along the White and Barents seas, from highly exposed, reflective beaches with coarse-grained sands to sheltered, dissipative silty-sandy flats. The data set adresses the objective to estimate the possible influence of the morphodynamic state and/or the sediment properties on the microbenthos (diatom algae and ciliates) of various high-latitude sandy beaches from the White and Barents Sea coasts.
