  • Mapping of the Vatika Bay seafloor has been conducted in two different periods: in June 2010 and May 2015.The shallow, northern part of the Bay has been mapped in 2010 during the research project "PAVLOPETRI" by means of swath bathymetry (RESON SeaBat 7125 200/400 kHz), side scan sonar (Geoacoustics 100/400 kHz) and pinger (3.5 kHz) subbottom profiler. The deeper seafloor of the Bay has been surveyed in 2015 by means of side scan sonar and chirp subbottom profiling for the purposes of the research project "Environmental Study of Vatika Bay", funded by the Prefecture of Peloponnese. The research vessel "ALKYON" has been used in both cruises. The description of the nature of the seafloor and the habitat mapping has been based mostly on the interpretation of the acoustic-geophysical data and Sentinel-2 satellite imagery, as well as secondarily on the limited sampling performed in the area.

  • The description and mapping of marine habitat types according to Annex I of Directive 92/43/EOK (EEC, 1992) and / or the European Nature Information System (EUNIS) in 66 of approximately 300 Greek NATURA 2000 network sites, were the subject of Research Work for the Ministry of Environment Planning and Public Works of Greece. This research project, under the name "Identification and description of habitat types at sites of interest for conservation", lasted from 1999 to 2002 and was carried out by the National Centre for Marine Research (NCMR, renamed as Hellenic Centre for Marine Research - HCMR since 2003) in association with the Institute of Marine Biology of Crete (IBCM, joined to HCMR since 2003), the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the Fisheries Research Institute (FRI). The recognition and imprinting of marine habitat types was based on the combined use of aerial photos of scale 1:5000 acquired during the second half of 1999 for the needs of the project, data from the scientific echo sounder Sea-Bed discrimination system "RoxAnn", phytobenthos samples and in situ observations by scuba diving and underwater cameras. Regarding the sampling, hard bottom samplings were carried out using SCUBA diving. The samples were collected on hard substrates mainly in the upper infralittoral zone (30 to 50 cm below the lowest sea level). For the study of the soft bottom habitats, oceanographic cruses were carried out with the IMBC R/V “Filia”, using a Smith McIntyre sediment sampler.
