  • EUNIS-translated Indicative biotopes for the Gwynt y Mor study area determined from the analysis of grab samples from the site between 2002-2004. Data originally in Classification system of UK and Ireland, translated to EUNIS at JNCC, 2013. Original non-eunis data retreived from the Crown Estate http://www.marinedataexchange.co.uk/ItemDetails.aspx?id=10609

  • This dataset contains the habitats map from the SCI (Site of Community Importance) “Canal de Menorca”. The "Menorca Channel" is a marine corridor located between the islands of Mallorca and Menorca in the Balearic Islands archipelago, with a minimum distance between the two islands of 36 kilometers. Its geographical position in the centre of the Western Mediterranean and its location, between islands, gives the area a peculiar set of oceanographic characteristics, including strong currentsand unusually transparent waters. 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 Biodiversity Foundation (www.fundacion-biodiversidad.es). 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). Habitats classification are been simplified owing to the requirements of the EMODnet (European Marine Observation and Data Network ) portal for Seabed Habitats.

  • This dataset contains the main habitats maps from the SCI (Site of Community Importance) “Banco de Galicia”. The Galician Bank is a deep underwater mountain located at the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula, 180 km from the Galician coast (in the north-east Atlantic Ocean). Its summit is located at a depth of between 650 and 1,500 metres. Its steep slopes descend from the summit to the abyssal plains located 4,000 meters below sea level. 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 "ECOMARG09", "INDEMARES_BANGAL0810", "INDEMARES_BANGAL0711" and "RADPROF0912". 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).

  • Data on marine habitats for the Celtic Sea generated from the collation of historical habitat data by Aquafact Environmental Consultants as part of the Strategic Environmental Assessment of the Irish and Celtic Seas, and published in the IOSEA 4 Report. The original classes assigned to the data were translated to the EUNIS habitat classification system as part of the MESH Atlantic project.

  • 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.

  • Investigation of benthic faunal characteristics of gravel seabed areas off the South Coast of the UK in the Eastern Channel. Data verified in-house. All data collected, analysed and verified by experts.

  • Cette carte est la synthèse des cartes de l'atlas de Claude Chassé et Michel Glémarec de l'Université de Bretagne Occidentale, "Atlas du littoral français, atlas des fonds meubles du plateau continental du Golfe de Gascogne, cartes biosédimentaires", publié en 1976 avec le concours du CNEXO. Cet atlas comprend deux types de cartes : cinq cartes biosédimentaires côtières au 1/100000 et une carte plus générale au 1/500000. Ces cartes ont fait l'objet en 2003 d'une numérisation dans le cadre du Réseau de surveillance de la flore et de la faune benthique marine REBENT. Sous forme numérique, ces cartes ont été regroupées en un seul lot de données.

  • This map is a representation of the seabed morphosedimentology, from the Southern North Sea to the Bay of Biscay, expressed on the scale 1:500000. Sedimentology data were generated from two charts, using very similar morphosedimentary classifications.
