  • Seabed habitat map (Habitat Directive) performed by IN VIVO within the framework of CARTHAM ("cartographie des habitats marins") project coordinated by the French Biodiversity Agency (Agence française pour la biodiversité, AFB). Map confidence rated by Ifremer : 57%

  • Under the MeshAtlantic project (2010-2013) the habitat of an area offshore Portimão (south coast of Portugal) was classified. The biological data was gathered from surveys carried out during 2012. Stratified sampling by depth and bottom substrate was performed using Van Veen grab and beam trawl to estimate fauna densities. Additional and significant data was obtained from image analysis of video records collected during Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) surveys carried out under the UALG/CCMAR programme. Both these surveys began with a previous acoustic mapping of the seabed by means of Side Scan Sonar and Multi-beam, followed by sediment type classification and ground truthing validation using Van Veen grab sampling.

  • The map shows the seabed habitat types and associated benthic communities distribution in the coastal area south of Sines (SW Portugal), which is partly included in the Special Protection Area (PTZPE0015) of the Natural Park of Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina. The data were obtained during the new survey crarried out in 2011 within the framework of the MeshAtlantic Project. The survey area is an area of moderate energy under the influence of wave action and tidal currents. The northern near shore area is partially exposed to the outfalls of a thermoelectric powerplant. Physical and biological datasets were combined aiming at matching the habitat classes defined in the EUNIS classification.

  • La carte de nature des fonds du site Natura 2000 en mer des Roches de Penmarc'h a été réalisée dans le cadre du programme Interreg MeshAtlantic et constitue la première étape de l'élaboration de la carte des habitats subtidaux du site. Ce jeu de données provient de l'interprétation et l'interpolation des acquisitions intertidales et subtidales ayant eu lieu sur le site de Penmarc'h entre 2011 et 2012. Ont participé à l'élaboration de ce produit : - Stevenn Lamarche (coord.), (Ifremer - Applications Géomatiques) - Jacques Populus (Ifremer - Applications Géomatiques) - Anthony Doré (MNHN SPN - Station de Biologie Marine de Concarneau) - Fabrice Pluquet (HOCER) - Anouar Hamdi (Géomaticien) - Eliot Besson (Stagiaire)

  • Under the MeshAtlantic project (2010-2013) the habitat of an area off the south coast of Portugal (Sagres) was classified. The biological data from the caves habitat was gathered from surveys carried out during 2012 and 2013. Sampling was performed using underwater visual census and Video transect along the cave. Historical data were also analised.

  • Multibeam echosounder data acquired during the INFOMAR national seabed mapping programme were the primary source of data used in the generation of this marine habitat map. The original classes assigned to the data were translated to the EUNIS habitat classification system as part of the MESH Atlantic project.

  • Multibeam echosounder data and seabed sampling data acquired during the INFOMAR national seabed mapping programme were the primary sources of data used in the generation of this habitat map for the Inshore Fisheries section of Bord Iascaigh Mhara. The original sediment classes assigned to the data were translated to the EUNIS habitat classification system as part of the MESH Atlantic project.
