  • Starting from scubasurveys andacoustic methods, the research work had the aim to obtain a first systematic and quantitative information for the characterization of the macrobenthic communities and related seabed substratum occurringwithinthe "Secche di Tor Paterno" AMP.

  • This map was produced using a mixed procedure which aims to integrate biological and environmental data. For this purpose biological benthic and sediment samples,belonging to 233 sites,were interpolated taking into account the bathymetric trend of seafloor. All these information were collected during the monitoring activities for beach Biocenotic maps of Latium coast nourishment founded by “Regione Lazio” local authority.For more info read : S.

  • Confidence in kinetic energy due to currents at the seabed in the Mediterranean. 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.

  • Kinetic energy due to waves at the seabed in Macaronesia, mean of annual 90th percentile values between 2016 and 2018 - Created using the CMEMS GLOBAL_ANALYSIS_FORECAST_WAV_001_027 3-hourly products, postprocessed to evaluate energy at 1m from the seabed. 1/12 degree horizontal resolution Created by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project consortium using E.U. Copernicus Marine Service Information.

  • Average density at the seabottom in the Black Sea - Created using the CMEMS salinity reanalysis dataset (SV04-BS-CMCC-SAL-REAN-M) of the BLKSEA_REANALYSIS_PHYS_007_004 product and monthly potential temperature at the seabottom, postprocessed to evaluate the salinity at the seabottom and using the (linearised) equation of state to evaluate seabottom density. 1/36 x 1/27 degree (3 km) resolution. Created by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project consortium using E.U. Copernicus Marine Service Information.

  • 90th percentile Kinetic Energy due to currents at the seabed in the Mediterranean Sea and Black Sea in N m2/s - Created for the EMODnet Seabed Habitats broad-scale habitat map (EUSeaMap 2016). This dataset is a raster composite of the outputs of several models, produced for display in the EMODnet Seabed Habitats. In the Black sea the data was derived from the Copernicus CMEMS project archives, the model resolution is 10km and it was run for the years 1971-1984; 1990-2001. In the Mediterranean Sea the data was derived from the Copernicus CMEMS project (resolution 7 km; years 1999-2011). In the Adriatic Sea the data was derived from the Tessa project archives (resolution 2.2 km, years: 2011-2014). Each dataset is available separately.

  • Kinetic energy due to waves at the seabed in the Black Sea, mean of annual 90th percentile values between 2016 and 2018 - Created using the ISPRA Mc-WAF operational tool, designed to merge different scales for the generation and propagation of the wave energy in the Mediterranean and Black Sea. 1/128 degree horizontal resolution. Created by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project consortium using the ISPRA Mc-WAF operational tool.

  • Confidence in kinetic energy due to currents at the seabed in the Iberian peninsula, created by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project consortium using E.U. Copernicus Marine Service Information.

  • Kinetic energy due to currents at the seabed in Macaronesia, mean of annual 90th percentile values between 2016 and 2018 - Created using the CMEMS IBI_ANALYSIS_FORECAST_PHYS_005_001 daily mean products, postprocessed to evaluate energy at 1m from the seabed. 1/36 degree horizontal resolution Created by the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project consortium.

  • Kinetic energy due to currents at the seabed in the Black Sea, mean of annual 90th percentile values between 2016 and 2018 - Created using the CMEMS SV03-BS-CMCC-CUR-AN-FC-D product and 2018 EMODnet bathymetry digital elevation model, daily currents postprocessed to evaluate energy values at 1 m from the seabed. 1/36 x 1/27 degree (3 km) horizontal resolution.
