  • Marine Scotland Science surveyed 260 km2 of coastline west of the Isle of Lewis using swath bathymetry and drop frame TV camera and video. The bathymetry, backscatter data and ground truthing were used to interpret habitat maps of the seabed.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Classification of seabed around Valentia Island into marine habitats. 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 INSS and INFOMAR national seabed mapping programmes were the primary sources of data used in the generation of this habitat map. The original sediment 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 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.

  • Targetted fishing ground for Nephrops norvegicus determined from Vessel Monitoring System data. The original classes assigned to the data were translated to the EUNIS habitat classification system as part of the MESH Atlantic project.

  • The map is a collection of polygons outlining substrate habitat maps/studies. Each polygon is attributed with a unique identifier connecting the polyon with a metadatadescription describing the resource. The collection of substrate habitat map outlines is maintained by the ICES Working Group on Marine Habitat Mapping (WGMHM). When adding the map to the ICES Spatial Facility (http://geo.ices.dk) the modelled habitat metadata can be explored by selecting a specific polygon.

  • This classification was produced using approach similar to the used by BGS in creation of seabed sediments maps. The interpretation used data from surface grab samples and surface sub-samples from vibro core samples. Each sample was colour coded following detailed particle size analysis based on Folk classification. This data was incorporated within GIS and interpreted together with multibeam backscatter and shaded relief. This exercise allowed interpolation between areas where sample data was absent. Moreover, this interpretation was supported with video dive data. Thus, this study produced seabed sediment type facies interpretation for selected study areas that added more detail to the existing BGS maps. 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.
