  • The cruise took place between the 1st and 29th of July 2009 and surveyed two Areas of Search (AoS) for offshore Special Areas of Conservation (SACs): Anton Dohrn Seamount located 155km west of the St Kilda archipelago, and East Rockall Bank located 260km west of the St Kilda archipelago. The main aims of the survey were to acquire acoustic and photographic ?ground-truthing? data to enable geological, geomorphological and biological characterisation of the Anton Dohrn Seamount and East Rockall Bank AoS. Specifically, the data acquired will lead to the production of broadscale habitat maps, the identification and description of Annex I reef habitats with particular attention to the occurrence of bedrock, stony and biogenic reef, to identify and record any anthropogenic impacts in the areas of search and finally to evaluate data acquisition methods, techniques and equipment.

  • Estonian mudflats and sandflats habitats (Annex I of the Habitats Directive) based on modelling and sonar sampling

  • A composite Habitats Directive Annex I feature extent map of Submarine structures made by leaking gases for the Croker Carbonate Slabs cSAC/SCI was created by JNCC staff to provide the most up-to-date knowledge of MDAC coverage within the site. Existing polygon data from three previous surveys (CEND1108, CEND0513 and CEND2315) and habitat maps were combined with groundtruthing point information, to build a composite understanding of “High” and “Potential” Annex I feature within the site.

  • Estonian sandbank habitats (Annex I of the Habitats Directive) based on modelling and sonar sampling

  • Estonian reef habitats (Annex I of the Habitats Directive) based on modelling and sonar sampling

  • Habitat map of the ROSCI-0293 Costinesti MPA in Black Sea (Romania)

  • Estonian MSFD habitats (HELCOM HUB level 3) based on modelling and sonar sampling

  • ICES biological community (zooplankton, phytoplankton, zoobenthos and phytobenthos) dataset for HELCOM and OSPAR

  • Habitat map of one region in Black Sea, Romania. This data was aquired in several cruises starting in 2014 and ending in 2016 for which different data was aquired. This include data for biology, chemistry, sedimentology, bathimetry, magnetometry, etc.

  • Contaminants and biological effects of contaminants in sediment, seawater and biota including fish disease
