  • Classification of Kenmare Bay into marine habitats. The original classes assigned to the data were translated to the EUNIS habitat classification system as part of the MESH Atlantic project.

  • JNCC and Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) undertook aseabed survey (CEND 22/13 & 23/13) at the North Norfolk Sandbanks and Saturn Reef SCIbetween 4 November and 25 November 2013 on the RV Cefas Endeavour(Vanstaen and Whomersley 2014). The aim was to gather additional seabed data to assist with the development of management advice for the site. Locations of known S. spinulosa reef, along with historic records where reef had been previously observed, were surveyed to assess presence, and where possible, delineate the Annex I biogenic reef feature and characterise associated fauna.

  • Data on marine habitats for the Irish Sea generated from the collation of historical sediment and biological data by Joint Nature Conservation Committee as part of the Irish Sea Pilot Project. The original classes assigned to the data were translated to the EUNIS habitat classification system as part of the MESH Atlantic project.

  • Classification of Roaringwater Bay into marine habitats. The original classes assigned to the data were translated to the EUNIS habitat classification system as part of the MESH Atlantic project.

  • 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.

  • THIS was was converted to EUNIS L3 by NE and forms the data NE provided to the JNCC as part of the MCZ project – Tranche 1. A MESH Confidence Score of 86 was assigned to the dataset based on the information given in the reports supporting the GIS.

  • In May 2008 (18-27 May), a survey commissioned by JNCC undertook seabed habitat investigations of two Areas of Search (AoS) for offshore SACs. The objectives of this survey, within the Submarine structures in the mid-Irish Sea AoS and the Solan Bank AoS, were to acquire high quality acoustic data capable of identifying and delineating habitats listed under Annex I of the 1992 EC Habitats Directive; primarily the Annex I habitat Submarine structures made by leaking gases in the former AoS and Annex I Reef habitat in the latter AoS. Surveys consisted of both broad-scale and fine-scale acoustic techniques, utilising sidescan sonar and multibeam swathe bathymetry, along with a variety of ground-truthing techniques including towed and drop down video/stills and Hamon grab sampling. A Rock dredge was also used at a few stations in order to gather samples of epibiota from hard substrata to assist with the taxonomic identification of the video and still images. The range of sampling techniques employed ensured that any Annex I habitats could be adequately described and characterised. For both AoSs survey planning and interpretation of survey data utilised extensive pre-existing data sets.
