  • Confidence in the kinetic energy due to currents at the seabed in the Channel, Celtic Sea and the Bay of Biscay - Created by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project consortium using the MANGA2500 IFREMER-DYNECO Hindcast. 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.

  • 90th percentile Kinetic energy due to currents at the seabed in the Iberian Peninsula - Created by the MARETEC team at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) (Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal) using WAVEWATCH III model. For the purpose of MeshAtlantic Project, values were integrated over 3 years. Values are averages of annual percentiles 90th. The spatial resolution of the dataset is 0.06 decimal degrees (5km)

  • Confidence in the 90th percentile Kinetic energy due to waves at the seabed along Portuguese coasts - Created by the MARETEC team at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) (Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal) using WAVEWATCH III model.

  • 90th percentile Kinetic energy due to currents at the seabed in the Channel and the Bay of Biscay - Created using the Ifremer hindcast archive MANGA2500. For the purpose of EMODnet Seabed Habitat broadscale habitat map product, values were integrated over period 2010-2015. Values are averages of annual percentiles 90th. The spatial resolution of the dataset is 0.00335 decimal degrees (2500m). The formula used for the Kinetic Energy calculation is 0.5mv^2, where m is the density of seawater (1027 kg.m-3) and v is the current-induced velocity. Values are expressed in N.m-2 (Newton per square meter). The vertical level is the near-seafloor. Created by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project consortium using the MANGA2500 IFREMER-DYNECO Hindcast.

  • 90th percentile Kinetic energy due to waves at the seabed in the Celtic Sea, Channel and Bay of Biscay - Created using the Homere French hindcast archive.HOMERE is a sea-states hindcast database, based on WAVEWATCH III model (version 4.11) on a unstructured grid covering the English Channel and Bay of Biscay (NGUG) over 1994-2016 period (23 years). For the purpose of EMODnet Seabed Habitat broadscale habitat map product, values were integrated over period 2010-2015. Values are averages of annual percentiles 90th. The spatial resolution of the dataset is 0.001 decimal degrees (100m), but the spatial resolution of the original datasets varies, from 300m is coastal waters to several kilometers in offshore areas. The kinetic energy were calculated using the formula 0.5*m*ubr*ubr*, where m is the water density constant value (taken as 1027 kg.m-3) and ubr is the WAVEWATCH III model variable (rms of bottom velocity amplitudes) Created by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project consortium using the HOMERE hindcast archive (Accensi Mickael, Maisondieu Christophe (2015).

  • 90th percentile Kinetic energy due to waves at the seabed in the Azores - Created by the MARETEC team at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) (Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal) using WAVEWATCH III model. For the purpose of MeshAtlantic Project, values were integrated over 3 years. Values are averages of annual percentiles 90th. The spatial resolution of the dataset is 0.0027 decimal degrees (250m), but it has been resampled from an original dataset, the spatial resolution of which is 0.05 decimal degrees (4.5km)
