  • A biotope analysis of Dundrum bay was conducted in 2015 as part of efforts to understand the distribution and extent of benthic habitats and associated marine life within the Murlough special area of conservation incorporating new and historical groundtruthing information alongside modern acoustic data. The map was originally presented in the Marine Habitat Classification for Britain & Ireland (http://jncc.defra.gov.uk/MarineHabitatClassification). This has been translated to the EUNIS habitat classification system for integration with other European datasets. For more information, see: AFBI, 2015. Bathymetric and Habitat Map for Murlough Special Area of Conservation and offshore, Northern Ireland. Report to the Department of the Environment.

  • The description and mapping of marine habitat types according to Annex I of Directive 92/43/EOK (EEC, 1992) and / or the European Nature Information System (EUNIS) in 66 of approximately 300 Greek NATURA 2000 network sites, were the subject of Research Work for the Ministry of Environment Planning and Public Works of Greece. This research project, under the name "Identification and description of habitat types at sites of interest for conservation", lasted from 1999 to 2002 and was carried out by the National Centre for Marine Research (NCMR, renamed as Hellenic Centre for Marine Research - HCMR since 2003) in association with the Institute of Marine Biology of Crete (IBCM, joined to HCMR since 2003), the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the Fisheries Research Institute (FRI). The recognition and imprinting of marine habitat types was based on the combined use of aerial photos of scale 1:5000 acquired during the second half of 1999 for the needs of the project, data from the scientific echo sounder Sea-Bed discrimination system "RoxAnn", phytobenthos samples and in situ observations by scuba diving and underwater cameras. Regarding the sampling, hard bottom samplings were carried out using SCUBA diving. The samples were collected on hard substrates mainly in the upper infralittoral zone (30 to 50 cm below the lowest sea level). For the study of the soft bottom habitats, oceanographic cruses were carried out with the IMBC R/V “Filia”, using a Smith McIntyre sediment sampler.

  • The Ministry of the Environment requested in 2011 the Consortium GEUS and Orbicon to carry out mapping tasks in the Danish part of the Kattegat and Western Baltic, partly as part of the government's raw material mapping and partly in connection with the implementation of the Marine Strategy Directive. This study area covers a part of Western Baltic

  • 90th percentile Kinetic Energy due to waves at the seabed in the North East Atlantic Sea, Greater North Sea and Celtic Seas in N m2/s - Created for the EMODnet Seabed Habitats broad-scale habitat map (EUSeaMap 2016). This dataset is a raster composite of the outputs of several models, created for display in the EMODnet Seabed Habitats portal. North Sea and Celtic Seas offshore (>6km from coast): NOC ProWAM model with a resolution of 12.5 km offshore run for a period of 5 years (2000-2005); North Sea and Celtic Seas inshore (<6km from coast): DHI MIKE21 Spectral wave model with a resolution of 100-300m run for a period of 5 years (2000-2005); French coasts: the data is derived from the French Previmer archives for the years 2000 to 2004, at a resolution of 250m; Bay of Biscay, inc. northern Spain and Southern Irish Sea: the data is derived from Ifremer's IOWAGA project hindcast archives (Roland and Ardhuin, 2014) using the WAVEWATCH III™ model (Tolman, 2009), run for a period of 5 years (2000-2005), the resolution is 300 m inshore, 3 km offshore. Iberian peninsula and Azores: WAVEWATCH III™ model (Tolman, 2009) run for 3 years with 4 km resolution

  • Data that contributed to the MB0102 Task 2I English intertidal habitats dataset. From foreshore geomorphology data.

  • Broadscale habitat (EUNIS level 3) for the Mounts Bay recommended Marine Conservation Zone (rMCZ).Seabed texture polygons mapped using automatic segmentation and classification of acoustic data (MBES bathymetry and backscatter) and groundtruthing data from PSA analysis and image (stills and video).

  • This file shows the distribution of Annex 1 habitats- large shallow inlets and bays, and reefs- in the Kilkee Reefs SAC. Habitat mapping is used to help define the area and range parameters for conservation objectives. Site-specific conservation objectives aim to define favourable conservation condition for Habitats Directive Annex I habitats at a site level.

  • This file shows the distribution of Annex 1 habitats - reefs and coastal lagoons - in Carrowmore Point to Spanish Point SAC. Habitat mapping is used to help define the area and range parameters for conservation objectives. Site-specific conservation objectives aim to define favourable conservation condition for Habitats Directive Annex I habitats at a site level.
