  • Areas of high riverine inputs for EUSeaMap 2019 Biological zone model. The map cover the Adriatic Sea (Po river plume), east Mediterranean (Thessaloniki gulf and bay, the Maliakos gulf, and Geras gulf in the Aegean Sea) and the Black Sea (Dnieper-Bug river plume area). These were handled separately in the modelling process. This layer is one of several habitat descriptors used to model biological zone and habitat class. To establish the limit of these areas datasets on salinity and water temperature were used, where possible. Detailed information on the modelling process for the 2016 is found in the EMODnet Seabed Habitats technical report and its appendices (Populus et al, 2017, link in Resources). We are working on an updated report for the 2019 version.

  • Confidence in kinetic energy due to waves at the seabed in the Black Sea. Values are on a range from 1 (Low confidence) to 3 (High confidence). The confidence assessment considered factors such as: • Quality of training data and methods used to construct the model. • Temporal resolution. • Spatial resolution Detailed information on the confidence assessment in Populus J. et al 2017.

  • Kinetic energy due to waves at the seabed in Macaronesia, mean of annual 90th percentile values between 2016 and 2018 - Created using the CMEMS GLOBAL_ANALYSIS_FORECAST_WAV_001_027 3-hourly products, postprocessed to evaluate energy at 1m from the seabed. 1/12 degree horizontal resolution Created by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project consortium using E.U. Copernicus Marine Service Information.

  • Average density at the seabottom in the Black Sea - Created using the CMEMS salinity reanalysis dataset (SV04-BS-CMCC-SAL-REAN-M) of the BLKSEA_REANALYSIS_PHYS_007_004 product and monthly potential temperature at the seabottom, postprocessed to evaluate the salinity at the seabottom and using the (linearised) equation of state to evaluate seabottom density. 1/36 x 1/27 degree (3 km) resolution. Created by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project consortium using E.U. Copernicus Marine Service Information.

  • Confidence in kinetic energy due to waves at the seabed in the Atlantic. Values are on a range from 1 (Low confidence) to 3 (High confidence). The confidence assessment considered factors such as: • Quality of training data and methods used to construct the model. • Temporal resolution. • Spatial resolution Detailed information on the confidence assessment in Populus J. et al 2017.

  • This layer shows the current known extent of Live Hard Coral in European waters, collated by EMODnet Seabed Habitats. Lophelia pertusa and Coral gardens are both on the OSPAR List of threatened and/or declining species and habitats. The relevant habitats were extracted from the library of maps on the EMODnet Seabed Habitats portal and collated into one standardised shapefile. This data product should be considered a work in progress and is not an official product.

  • Confidence in kinetic energy due to currents at the seabed in the Mediterranean. Values are on a range from 1 (Low confidence) to 3 (High confidence). The confidence assessment considered factors such as: • Quality of training data and methods used to construct the model. • Temporal resolution. • Spatial resolution Detailed information on the confidence assessment in Populus J. et al 2017.

  • Confidence in the 90th percentile Kinetic energy due to waves at the seabed in the Celtic Sea, Channel and Bay of Biscay. Values are on a range from 1 (Low confidence) to 3 (High confidence). The confidence assessment considered factors such as: • Quality of training data and methods used to construct the model. • Temporal resolution. • Spatial resolution Detailed information on the confidence assessment in Populus J. et al 2017.

  • Confidence in kinetic energy due to currents at the seabed in Norway - Created by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project consortium from data derived from Institute for Marine Research, Norway. Values are on a range from 1 (Low confidence) to 3 (High confidence). The confidence assessment considered factors such as: • Quality of training data and methods used to construct the model. • Temporal resolution. • Spatial resolution Detailed information on the confidence assessment in Populus J. et al 2017.

  • Oxygen regime class layer in the Black Sea produced by EMODnet Seabed Habitats as an input layer for the 2019 EUSeaMap broad-scale habitat model. The map of oxygen regime classes was produced using underlying potential density anomaly at the seabed and thresholds derived from statistical analyses or expert judgement on known conditions. Detailed information on the modelling process for the 2016 is found in the EMODnet Seabed Habitats technical report and its appendices (Populus et al, 2017, link in Resources). We are working on an updated report for the 2019 version.
