  • All the marine datasets managed by ICES

  • EM302 bathymetric data subset covering the Greenland EEZ. Two versions of the datasets are available: the first version from the Ocean Mapping Group (2003-2013) and the second version, which integrates 2014. The second version is now under the responsibility of the Marine Geosciences Laboratory (LGM) at Laval University.

    The dataset contains integrated values of total and mesopelagic backscatter for an EK60 38 kHz echosounder, from ~25 to 1000 m depth, collected during June 2018 during a Norwegian cruise aimed at mapping mesopelagic resources. Data is based on integration of data cleaned with automatic filters using KORONA, and manual cleanup of remaining problems (false bottoms etc.). All backscatter deeper than 200 m were then assigned to the mesopelagic category, with backscatter shallower than 200 m reported in the total category.

    The dataset contains integrated values of total and mesopelagic backscatter for an EK60 38 kHz echosounder, from ~25 to 1000 m depth, collected during May and June 2013 during a Norwegian trans-atlantic cruise. Data is based on integration of data cleaned with automatic filters using KORONA, and manual cleanup of remaining problems (false bottoms etc.). All backscatter deeper than 200 m were then assigned to the mesopelagic category, with backscatter shallower than 200 m reported in the total category.

  • This layer is a predictive EUNIS seabed habitat map for the Atlantic area. The layer has been created using three pre-processed input datasets: substrate, biological zone and energy. The seabed substrate type layer is a compendium of historical maps. The biological zones layer was modeled thanks to layers of bathymetry, light attenuation, and wave wavelength. The layer of energy was prepared thanks to archived results of numerical models of waves and currents. The map follows the EUNIS 2007-11 classification system supplemented by additional categories in deep sea areas (Howell et al., 2010). The map does not include the intertidal zone. The study followed the methodology developped within the EUSeaMap project. For more details about the methodology see EUSeaMap final report (Cameron and Askew, 2011) or Coltman et al., 2008 For more details about the substrate and bathymetry that were used as a basis see Mata Chacón et al.

    The dataset contains integrated values of total and mesopelagic backscatter for an EK60 38 kHz echosounder, from ~25 to 1000 m depth, collected during October 2016 during a Norwegian cruise aimed at mapping mesopelagic resources. Data is based on integration of data cleaned with automatic filters using KORONA, and manual cleanup of remaining problems (false bottoms etc.). All backscatter deeper than 200 m were then assigned to the mesopelagic category, with backscatter shallower than 200 m reported in the total category.

  • This layer is a model of the biological zones of the Adriatic Sea. It was performed within the framework of EMODnet Phase 2 Thematic Lot n° 3 (aka EUSeaMap2). It is a preliminary version which will be refined during the course of the project. This layer was modelled with the use of base layers that were the seabed substrate type (obtained from EMODnet phase 2 Geology lot, June 2014 release), the bathymetry (EMODnet phase 1 Hydrography lot) and the kdpar (bespoke computed layer) The biological zones boundaries were defined in the following way. - Infralittoral lower limit: limit at which the percentage of light reaching the seabed is 1%. The percentage of light layer was calculated by intersecting the kdpar and the bathymetry layers. For more details about this calculation see e.g. Cameron and Askew (2011). - Circalittoral lower limit: break of slope due to the entrance into the continental slope. This limit was digitalized with the use of the bathymetry layer - Bathyal lower limit: break of slope due to the entrance into the abyssal plain. This limit was digitalized with the use of the bathymetry layer In a western area for which the seabed substrated type is influenced by the Pô river, different rules were used for the definition infralittoral and circalittoral zones. Where the substrate is muddy (i.e. mud or sandy mud) and/or the seabed is deeper than 20 meters then the biological zone was said to be circalittoral. Elsewhere it was defined as infralittoral.

  • This layer is a predictive EUNIS seabed habitat map for the Canary Islands. It was performed within the framework of EMODnet Phase 2 Thematic Lot n° 3 (aka EUSeaMap2). It is a preliminary version which will be refined during the course of the project. The layer was created using two pre-processed input datasets: substrate and biological zone. The seabed substrate type layer was a compendium of historical maps (Emodnet phase 2 Geology lot first release + Datasets from Instituto Español de Oceanografía). The biological zones layer, available in this catalog under the title 'Biological zones of the Canary Islands and Madeira archipelago', was modeled thanks to layers of bathymetry and light attenuation. The map follows the EUNIS 2007-11 classification system supplemented by additional categories in deep sea areas (Howell et al., 2010). The map does not include the intertidal zone. The study followed the methodology developped within the EUSeaMap project (EMODnet phase 1).
