  • Raster showing the photosynthetic active radiation (PAR) reaching the seabed, values in mol.phot.m^-2.d^-1. Derived by multiplying the fraction of surface light reaching the seabed by the amount of light at the sea surface. Layer created for use in the 2019 EUSeaMap, and updated in 2018 in order to cover Iceland and the Barents Sea. Dataset's spatial extent covers European Seas including the Azores and Canary Islands, but excluding the eastern Baltic. Created by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats consortium using data from the European Space Agency MERIS instrument.

  • Raster showing the average diffuse attenuation coefficient of photosynthetic active radiation (KDPAR) between 2005 and 2009, values in metres^-1. Data was collected by the MERIS satellite and this layer was created for use in the 2019 EUSeaMap. In 2018 the coverage was extended to Iceland and Barents Sea. Dataset's spatial extent covers European Seas including the Azores and Canary Islands, but excluding the eastern Baltic. The spatial resolution of the dataset is around 100m, but that of the original data source is around 250m. Created by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats consortium using data from the European Space Agency MERIS instrument.

  • Raster showing the photosynthetic active radiation (PAR) reaching the seabed, values in mol.phot.m^-2.d^-1. Derived by multiplying the fraction of surface light reaching the seabed by the amount of light at the sea surface. Layer created for use in the 2016 EU SeaMap. Datasets spatial extent covers European Seas including the Azores and Canary Islands, but excluding the eastern Baltic.

  • This dataset contains the habitats map from the SCI (Site of Community Importance) “Volcanes de fango del Golfo de Cádiz”. The Gulf of Cadiz is located in the eastern sector of the North Atlantic Ocean, to the southwest of the Iberian Peninsula. Mud Volcanoes are seafloor edifices, of a usually conical geometry, that result from the release of mud, hydrocarbon and fluids in gas-rich areas over pressured sediments. This study was supported by the INDEMARES-LIFE+ Project, EC contract INDEMARES-LIFE+ (07/NAT/E/000732): Inventory and Designation of the Natura 2000 network in marine areas of the Spanish State (www.indemares.es/en). This work was coordinated by the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO, www.ieo.es) and the Biodiversity Foundation (www.fundacion-biodiversidad.es). The interpretation has been made possible thanks to direct and indirect samplings and geophysical data from campaigns INDEMARES_CHICA (CHICA0610, CHICA0211, CHICA1011 and CHICA0412). Habitats are classified according to EUNIS nomenclature and the List of Marine Habitats in Spain (LPRE, that it’s classified hierarchically and was completed and published in March 2013).

  • Fraction of surface light reaching the seabed (Fr), values between 0 and 1. Derived from KDPAR and depth rasters (EMODnet bathymetry 100m DTM, 2019) using the following equation; Fr = e^-KDPAR*depth Datasets spatial extent covers European Seas including the Azores and Canary Islands, but excluding the eastern Baltic.

  • Raster showing the number of MERIS images that were used to derive KDPAR values for each pixel. Data was collected by the MERIS satellite between 2005 and 2009 and this layer was created for use in the 2016 EUSeaMap. Datasets spatial extent covers European Seas including the Azores and Canary Islands, but excluding the eastern Baltic.

  • Raster showing a qualitative assessment of confidence in the photosynthetic active radiation (PAR) reaching the seabed, values in mol.phot.m^-2.d^-1. Values are on a range from 1 (Low confidence) to 3 (High confidence). Layer created for use in the 2019 EUSeaMap, and updated in 2018 in order to cover Iceland and the Barents Sea Datasets spatial extent covers European Seas including the Azores and Canary Islands, but excluding the eastern Baltic. The method used to calculate this layer is described in Section 10.1.2 (part of the Confidence Appendix) of Populus et al (2016). EUSeaMap A European broad-scale seabed habitat map Final Report.

  • This dataset contains the habitats map from the SCI (Site of Community Importance) “Sistema de cañones submarinos de Avilés” (Avilés Canyon System). The Avilés Canyon system is located in the eastern sector of the North Atlantic Ocean, on the continental margin to the north of the Iberian Peninsula. It is structurally a highly complex area, where the continental shelf in the Bay of Biscay is deeply affected by the action of tectonic compression, containing important geomorphological elements; these include: three great submarine canyons, a marginal platform and a tall structural rocky mass.
