Sub-watershed Drainage Basins for Baltic Sea drainage basin region (Pesi:basinsbalticsea)

The main Baltic Sea drainage basin map was created by M. Falkenmark and Z. Mikulski (HELCOM 1986). Both map projection and scale are unknown. Independent measurements indicate a scale of approximately 1:5,000,000. Two additional maps were used to provide more accurate delineations in the Danish Straits and Kattegat sub- regions. These paper maps were also of unknown scale and projection. The Digital Chart of the World (DCW) by ESRI was used for spatial positioning when joining all data sets. These map sources identified 81 sub-basins, which can be aggregated to seven major watersheds for the following major water bodies that define the Baltic Sea: Bothnian Bay, Bothnian Sea, Gulf of Finland, Gulf of Riga, the Baltic Proper, Danish Straits, and the Kattegat. The main Baltic Sea drainage basin map was digitised and transformed in three separate sections using PC ARC/INFO. The Root Mean Square (RMS) error ranged between 0.01 and 0.02. Four sub- basins from the Danish Straits and nine from the Kattegat paper maps were digitised. The RMS errors were 0.01 and 0.06, respectively. All sections were joined together using the APPEND command. Although some RMS errors were high, the final drainage basin data set lines up well with other coverages in the database. The coverage was edited for dangling arcs and label errors. When the editing process was complete, topology was created using the CLEAN command with a 20 meter fuzzy tolerance and dangle length. All polygons were assigned unique id's before attribute data was added. An item called SUBID was added to the coverages .PAT file. This value represents the sub-basin or water body for which each polygon belongs. SUBID served as a bridge item to join additional attributes that existed in an EXCEL spreadsheet. Individual SUBIDs were assigned by selecting polygon label points in ARCEDIT and CALCing SUBID to be the correct value. Extensive error checking was performed before all other attribute data was appended. In addition to the added item SUBID, 21 other attributes were appended to the cover .PAT file. These attributes originated from (a) and database of monthly loads of land based eutrophying substances (Stalnache, 1994), (b) data extracted from the Land Cover data set, and (c) data extracted from the Population Distribution data set.

Nationally Designated Areas (EMODNet_HumanActivities:cdda)

The dataset on marine and coastal protected areas in the EU was created in 2015 by Cogea for the European Marine Observation and Data Network. The dataset is entirely based on the European Environmental Agency's (EEA) datasets "Natura 2000" and "Nationally designated areas (CDDA)". Natura 2000 is an ecological network composed of sites designated under the Birds Directive (Special Protection Areas, SPAs) and the Habitats Directive (Sites of Community Importance, SCIs, and Special Areas of Conservation, SACs). The Common Database on Designated Areas (CDDA) is more commonly known as Nationally designated areas. The inventory began in 1995 under the CORINE programme of the European Commission. It is now one of the agreed Eionet priority data flows maintained by EEA with support from the European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity. It is a result of an annual data flow through Eionet countries. The EEA publishes the dataset and makes it available to the World Database of Protected Areas (WDPA). The CDDA data can also be queried online in the European Nature Information System (EUNIS). EEA's data have been filtered by Cogea to show only maritime areas (i.e. areas entirely at sea), and coastal areas (internal areas that intersect and/or are tangent to the coast using 1 km buffer).This dataset cover the whole EU in the case of Natura 2000 data. In the case of CDDA, geographical coverage of GIS vector boundary data is: Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Ireland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Kosovo under UNSC Resolution 1244/99, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom. For further information please visit EEA's website. Compared with the previous version, the latest version of this data made available through EMODnet includes:- update to 'CDDA v13' and 'Natura 2000 End 2015', both published by the EEA in 2015;- a new field has been added to CDDA with a link to IUCN categories;-a new field has been added to CDDA with the Country name in english;- a new field has beed added to Natura 2000 with a link to the Habitats and Birds directives- a new field has been added to Natura 2000 dataset to explain the meaning of the 'Site type' field.

Continental margins between 140m and 3500m depth (IFREMER - COMARGE, 2009) (MarineRegions:comarge)

This shapefile has been prepared in the framework of COMARGE, one of the field project of the Census of Marine Life. It is intended to represent continental margins worldwide, with the exclusion of the continental shelf. The continental margins have been defined based on bathymetry and expert opinion. The upper margin of the boundary has been set at 140 m depth, which is the average depth of the shelf break, except in Antarctica where the shelf break goes deeper and the upper boundary has been set up at 500 m. The lower boundary has been set at 3500 m depth. Both isobaths were extracted from S2004 Bathymetry (a global bathymetry at 1 arc-minute resolution). The upper and lower boundaries were manually edited to follow the contour of continental margins in particular cases.

This map shows the locations where measurements will be performed within the CREST project (Climate Resilient Coast). Different types of measurements will be carried out. * In Zeebrugge wave overtopping will be monitored. * Climatic parameters are collected in Ostend. * At Groenendijk-West and Mariakerke the amount of sand that is displaced under the influence of the wind will be measured. * In addition to these aeolian measurements, several parameters are measured in Mariakerke by means of buoys, and there is an Argus system operational. Every 30 minutes a photo is taken from the beach that can be used in the determination of the coastline, bathymetry and wave and current characteristics.

Test locations (CREST, Belgian coast, 2015-2019) (Crestproject:crest_testlocaties)

Two zones were defined in the CREST project (Climate Resilient Coast) as test sites. One zone is situated at Mariakerke, the other in West-Groenendijk (Koksijde). Following measurements will be carried out at both locations: measurements using wave buoys, with a frame, aeolian sand transport and wind and current measurements, topographic measurements.

Depth profiles (Sea Scheldt, 2015) (Scheldemonitor:diepteprofielen_2015)

In the Sea Scheldt and tributaries the profiles of 28 mud flat and salt marsh zones are measured annually on lines perpendicular to the shore. For each profile detailed measurements are made with sedimentation erosion plots as well (reference pole with 16 measurements around it) to statistically detect changes to profiles too. The measurements take place from the toe of the dyke to the low water line. While being measured the profiles are described on morphodynamic features and documented on fixed points with photographs. Granulometry is also determined for microdynamics on those lines.

Marine Ecoregions of the World, ecoregions (coastline) (Ecoregions:ecoregions)

The Marine Ecoregions of the World, MEOW, is a biogeographic classification of the world's coasts and shelves. It is the first ever comprehensive marine classification system with clearly defined boundaries and definitions and was developed to closely link to existing regional systems. The ecoregions nest within the broader biogeographic tiers of Realms and Provinces. MEOW represents broad-scale patterns of species and communities in the ocean, and was designed as a tool for planning conservation across a range of scales and assessing conservation efforts and gaps worldwide. The current system focuses on coast and shelf areas (as this is where the majority of human activity and conservation action is focused) and does not consider realms in pelagic or deep benthic environment. It is hoped that parallel but distinct systems for pelagic and deep benthic biotas will be devised in the near future. The project was led by The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), with broad input from a working group representing key NGO, academic and intergovernmental conservation partners.

Ecotope map (Scheldt, 2016) (Scheldemonitor:ecotoop2016)

These maps were constructed based on the descriptions given in Van Braeckel et al. (2012), as well as earlier MONEOS reports. The ecotope map the result of the merger of two separate layers, being an fysiotopic and a geomorphologic layer. The maps of the lower Sea Scheldt, upper Sea Scheldt, Rupel and Durme were actualised in 2016. The geomorphologic layer is a polygon map that was actualized in 2016 using ARCGIS, based on 'false colour' imagery from the lower Sea Scheldt (source: nv De Vlaamse Waterweg) and 'true colour' orthoimagery from the upper Sea Scheldt, Rupel and Durme. Because the time at which the images were collected does not precisely match low tide, interpretation of the substrate in low lying areas has also been done based on 'true colour' orthoimagery from march 2017 (source: GDI-Vlaanderen AGIV), as well as field observations and digital height models.

Exclusive Economic Zones (200 NM) V10 (MarineRegions:eez)

Version 10 of the Exclusive Economic Zones from the VLIZ Maritime Boundaries Geodatabase. An exclusive economic zone (EEZ) is a seazone extending from a state's coast or baseline over which the state has special rights over the exploration and use of marine resources. Generally a state's EEZ extends 200 nautical miles out from its coast, except where resulting points would be closer to another country. This dataset also contains delimitation of disputed areas and joint regimes.

Territorial Seas (12 NM) V2 (MarineRegions:eez_12nm)

Version 2 of the Territorial Seas from the VLIZ Maritime Boundaries Geodatabase. Territorial seas are a belt of coastal waters extending at most 12 nautical miles (22.2 km; 13.8 mi) from the baseline (usually the mean low-water mark) of a coastal state.

Contiguous Zones (24 NM) V2 (MarineRegions:eez_24nm)

Version 2 of the Contiguous Zones from the VLIZ Maritime Boundaries Geodatabase. The Contiguous Zone is a band of water extending from the outer edge of the territorial sea to up to 24 nautical miles (44.4 km; 27.6 mi) from the baseline.

Archipelagic Waters (V2) (MarineRegions:eez_archipelagic_waters)

When treaties are not available, median lines have been calculated. This dataset also contains delimitation of disputed boundaries and joint regimes.

Marineregions: the intersect of the Exclusive Economic Zones and IHO areas (v3) (MarineRegions:eez_iho)

The maritime boundaries provide a useful tool to limit national marine areas, but do not include information on marine regional and sub regional seas. This hampers the usage of these boundaries for implementing nature conservation strategies or analyzing marine biogeographic patterns. For example, a species occurring in the German EEZ can live in the North Sea, the Baltic Sea or Kattegat area. Each of these different marine areas has very distinct hydrological, oceanographic and ecological conditions. Therefore, by combining the information on regional seas and national maritime boundaries, we can include both a environmental and managerial factor. We propose to overlay the information from the maritime boundaries (the Exclusive Economic Zones) with the IHO Sea Areas (IHO, 1953). This map including the global oceans and seas, has been drafted for hydrographic purposes, but also gives an unequivocal and acceptable distinction of the regional seas and oceans from an oceanographic point of view. The combination of these two boundaries allows us for example to create national regional sea areas for the global ocean.

Finsfish Production (EMODNet_HumanActivities:finfish)

The dataset provides information about the location of seawater finfish farms. There is an obligation for MS to inventory all authorized aquaculture sites under the Council Directive 2006/88/EC on animal health requirements. Despite this obligation, the availability of data varies significantly among MS from no data available at all to a complete regularly updated dataset (e.g.in Scotland). Most MS with only a marginal finfish production are not able to provide a list with the geolacation of farms. In the main producer countries, there is usually a public list of authorized farms with geolocation data and sometimes information on the species. Data is provided here for Cyprus, Denmark, Greece, Ireland, Finland, Spain and the UK. There are no sea-based finfish farms in Belgium, Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Poland. There is a significant production in Italy and marginal productions in other MS but they were not able to provide geolocation data. (1) In the last version from April 11 2016, data for Scotland and Ireland were updated and two fields were added: Status (provided only in Ireland and the UK), which indicates whether the sites are active or not. Detailed licence status or available for Ireland; (2) Point information, which indicates if the data points correspond to the data provided by the Source ("Original") or if they have been estimated by the Emodnet team when Polygons were provided ("Polygon centroid", in Ireland only).

The area THBREF has been closed for exploitation since 1 October 2010 and serves as a reference area for biological monitoring. The areas KBMA and KBMB have been closed for exploitation since 15 February 2003 and 1 October 2010 respectively due to the emergence of a deeper depression than legally permitted. Sectors 3a and 3b are alternately open for exploitation. Currently, sector 3b is used as an unloading quay. This will remain the case until the area has become too shallow for dredgers who are used for maintenance dredging or until another economic or ecological criterion encourages the government to relocate this quay.

To display a coarser grid, for example, a 15-degree interval, define the theme properties as lines with the Degree15 attribute equal to Y.

Location GPRS loggers groundwater monitoring (INBO) (Lifewatch:groundwaterloggers)

Fluctuations in groundwater levels are a determining factor for the sustainability of habitats. Therefore, the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) has set up the WATINA network, a monitoring network of over 9000 groundwater wells in Natura 2000 areas in Flanders. However, this assignment is hampered by factors such as accessibility of the terrain and manpower. Therefore, in the framework of LifeWatch, the INBO is now extending its monitoring techniques by using devices that can expose the groundwater levels real-time without the need for any manual intervention, and thereby reducing the risk of data loss when severe issues occur. These groundwater loggers with a GPRS modem (GPRS loggers) use an internal modem and a SIM card to send the data over the mobile network and they are employed in inaccessible areas with specific issues such as military domains or flood plains. Currently, 35 GPRS loggers are deployed, distributed across Flanders.

The geodatabase on offshore hydrocarbon extraction in the EU was created in 2014 by Cogea for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by several sources from all across the EU (plus Norway). It is updated every six months, and is available for viewing and download (data on Germany are available only for viewing) on EMODnet - Human Activities web portal (www.emodnet-humanactivities.eu). The database contains points representing offshore hydrocarbon boreholes drilled in the following countries: Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and UK. Each point has the following attributes: status (active, abandoned, suspended, unknown, other), country, code, name, year (spud date), purpose (exploration, exploitation, other, unknown), fluid type (oil, gas, oil and gas, other, unknown), operator, drilling company, coastal distance and water depth.The new features in the current version of the dataset are:- Update of boreholes data to April 2015- The dataset on Germany now contains boreholes, instead of platforms (in the previous version).

Delineation of the ICES Ecoregions was originally described in ICES Advice ACFM/ACE report(2004). In the present updated version, the delineation has been updated to account for additional policy objectives and reconciling of legislation (eg the MSFD and the EU water and habitats directives) The differences are based on the four principles: 1. Within the EU accept the MSFD regional and sub-regional definitions. 2. Separate Icelandic Seas from those around Greenland. 3. Use Large Marine Ecosystem units to define the Arctic Ocean. 4. Use the accepted Norwegian regional management plans definitions of the Norwegian and Barents Seas. The Ecoregions were proposed to assist the implementation of the ecosystem approach in European waters

Underprivileged neighbourhoods (West Flanders, 2017) (Kustportaal:kansarmebuurten)

The geographical level, at which the work is carried out, are the statistical sectors as defined by the former National Institute of Statistics. For convenience, these are called "neighbourhoods". For each neighbourhood, a score was calculated for each dimension (demography, housing, education and unemployment). These dimension scores are than used to carry out a analysis of the socio-economic deprivation. Analogously with the socio-economic deprivation atlas of Kesteloot, a threshold value of 15% was used. In concrete terms: for each dimension of socio-economic deprivation (demography, housing, education and job-seekers), the 1,297 neighbourhoods are ranked from high to low. For this purpose, the dimension scores were used. The threshold value for each dimension is thus obtained by taking the value at which 15% of all neighbourhoods have a higher value than this threshold value. In order to determine whether or not a neighbourhood can be described as vulnerable, we state that all neighbourhoods that have exceeded the threshold values on 3 or 4 of the dimensions can be considered potentially disadvantaged.

TDWG (Taxonomic Database Working Group), level 1 (TDWG:level1)

In setting out to establish standards for data fields in botanical databases, the International Working Group on Taxonomic Databases for Plant Sciences (TDWG) identified at an early stage of its existence a need for an agreed system of geographical units at approximately “country” level and upwards for use in recording plant distributions. The system offered covers the whole world and identifies units at four levels, firstly continental, secondly regional (or subcontinental), thirdly at what may be called “Botanical Country” level (which may often ignore purely political considerations), and fourthly at a slightly lower level called “Basic Recording Units” where political integrity is fully recognised. In many cases, where Botanical Countries have no complicating political factors, the units at Level-3 and Level-4 are identical. Very large countries, however, have been subdivided into more conveniently sized units according to constituent states or provinces. It is a fundamental principle that units at all levels are bounded either by political boundaries which appear on modern maps or by coast lines. Modern geographical information systems have not superseded the need for such a scheme. (http://www.nhm.ac.uk/hosted_sites/tdwg/TDWG_geo2.pdf)

Since 1999, the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) studies the postnuptial migration, and mate and site fidelity of large gulls, using observer sightings of color-ringed individuals. Using similar methods, the INBO started studying the ecology of the Western Marsh Harrier in 2011, an Appendix I species of the European Birds Directive, which Belgian population is in decline. Although the extensive database at present holds more than 90.000 resighting records, emerging habitat use and migration patterns are strongly biased towards more populated areas and locations where the rings can easily be read. In the framework of the Flemish contributions to the LifeWatch infrastructure, a high-tech sensor network was installed (start June 2013) to better monitor the habitat use and migration patterns of large birds, such as the European Herring Gull (Larus argentatus Pontoppidan, 1736), the Lesser Black-backed Gull (Larus fuscus Linnaeus, 1758) and the Western Marsh Harrier (Circus aeruginosus Linnaeus, 1758). The birds are equipped with lightweight, solar powered GPS tags, while antennas and ground stations are installed at the breeding grounds to track the GPS signals.

LifeWatch Partners (Lifewatch:lfinstitutes)

Belgium contributes to LifeWatch with varied and complementary "in-kind" contributions. These are implemented under the form of long lasting projects by different research centers and universities spread over the country and supported by each respective political authority. The Flemish contributions to LifeWatch are coordinated by the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ, marine part) and the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO, freshwater and terrestrial part). This Flemish LifeWatch consortium is funded through FWO (Research Foundation Flanders/Fonds Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek) (formerly through the Hercules Foundation). In the framework of LifeWatch, the Wallonia-Brussels Federation is financing a collaborative research program between scientists of the Earth and Life Institute (Université catholique de Louvain) and the Biosystems Engineering Department (Université de Liège/Gembloux-ABT). The Federal contribution to LifeWatch is coordinated by the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS), in collaboration with the Royal Museum for Central Africa (RMCA). The federal authority also supports the Belgian Biodiversity Platform to set-up and animate a LifeWatch scientific node. The federal contributions are funded by Belspo. Belspo will also fund the Belgian contribution to the LifeWatch ERIC.

LifeWatch Stations - Monthly and seasonal stations (Lifewatch:lfmonitoringstations)

A grid of 9 LifeWatch stations is orientated along an east-west gradient and covers the coastal zone. These stations are sampled monthly during 1-day LifeWatch surveys. Seasonally, 8 additional LifeWatch stations, located further at sea, are sampled during 2-day surveys according to an offshore-inshore gradient.

Bat tracking network Motus – Antennas (Lifewatch:lfmotus)

As part of the Lifewatch observatory and the Motus wildlife tracking network, a network of antenna stations was installed to track migrating bats along the coasts of the North Sea. Currently, two radiotelemetry stations are installed in Belgium, one in Koksijde and one in Heist. The deployment of a third station on an offshore wind turbine is planned.

LifeWatch Vemco Receivers - Fish acoustic receiver network (Lifewatch:lfreceivers)

As part of the Belgian LifeWatch observatory, a permanent acoustic receiver network for fish tracking is established in the Belgian Part of the North Sea and the Western Scheldt estuary. Using acoustic telemetry distribution, movements and habitat use of tagged migratory fish (such as European eel and Atlantic cod) can be tracked. Tags or transmitters are surgically implanted in the belly of individual fish; and acoustic receivers are installed on buoys, ship wrecks and river banks. Currently, (situation end 2016), a total of 87 receivers are installed and 163 individuals have been tagged.

C-PODS - Cetacean passive acoustic network (C-PODS) (Lifewatch:lfstations_cpod)

As part of the marine LifeWatch observatory, the permanent Cetacean passive acoustic network in the BPNS contains 10 C-PODs. These are deployed on tripod frames positioned along an east-west gradient covering coastal, midshore and offshore zones of the BPNS. The C-POD itself is attached to a buoy with an acoustic release system, allowing for the recovery of the equipment.

Lighthouses (EMODNet_HumanActivities:lighthouses)

This dataset provides the location of lighthouses inventoried by the Amateur Radio Lighthouse Society (ARLS). It includes both existing lighthouses and historical ones that have been removed, relocated or destroyed (column Status). The dataset includes the name of the lighthouse, its code in the ARLSH database and the gridsquare within which it is located. Coordinates are approximate for most of the lighthouses.

Lithological map (Lower Sea Scheldt, 2010) (Scheldemonitor:lithologischekaart)

The lithological map includes the enclosing polygons of places with similar sediment composition. A lithological map is created through the processing and classification of multibeam backscatter data (Flemish Hydrography) and coupling the backscatter classes to the analysis results of the sediment samples. The map is divided into the following classes: sand, sludgy sand, sandy sludge, sludge, hard soil by clay and hard soil by gravel.

The 66 Large Marine Ecosystems of the World (MarineRegions:lme)

LMEs are natural regions of ocean space encompassing coastal waters from river basins and estuaries to the seaward boundary of continental shelves and the outer margins of coastal currents. They are relatively large regions of 200,000 km2 or greater, the natural boundaries of which are based on four ecological criteria: bathymetry, hydrography, productivity, and trophically related populations. The theory, measurement, and modeling relevant to monitoring the changing states of LMEs are imbedded in reports on ecosystems with multiple steady states, and on the pattern formation and spatial diffusion within ecosystems. The concept that critical processes controlling the structure and function of biological communities can best be addressed on a regional basis has been applied to the ocean by using LMEs as the distinct units for marine resources assessment, monitoring, and management.

Longhurst Provinces (MarineRegions:longhurst)

The dataset represents the division of the world oceans into provinces as defined by Longhurst (1995; 1998; 2006). The division has been based on the prevailing role of physical forcing as a regulator of phytoplankton distribution. The dataset contains the initial static boundaries developed at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography, Canada. Note that the boundaries of these provinces are not fixed in time and space, but are dynamic and move under seasonal and interannual changes in physical forcing. At the first level of reduction, Longhurst recognised four principal biomes: the Polar biome, the Westerlies biome, the Trade winds biome, and the Coastal biome. These four biomes are recognised in every major ocean basin. At the next level of reduction, the ocean basins are divided into provinces, roughly ten for each basin. These regions provide a template for data analysis or for making parameter assignments on a global scale. Please refer to Longhurst's publications when using these shapefiles.

Modelled Spatial Distributions of Coralligenous Habitats (2014) (Emodnet:mediseh_coral_model)

Coralligenous formations and mäerl beds are typical benthic seascape features of the Mediterranean Sea, and are protected habitats under Council Regulation (EC) No 1967/2006. Despite their ecological importance in terms of biodiversity and ecosystem services, knowledge on the spatial distribution of these two “habitats” remains scattered. In Task 1.3 of the “Mediterranean Sensitive Habitats” project (MEDISEH), the objective was to develop species distribution models for coralligenous formations and mäerl beds, so as to predict their occurrence at poorly-sampled and un-sampled areas. Using models in predictive mode, continuous habitat maps were created for the Mediterranean basin: these maps help identify areas where these habitats are likely to be found, and where they are likely to be absent. Please refer to the final report of the MEDISEH project (section on Task 1.3) for full details on the methodology, results and interpretation of the maps showing the predicted occurrence probability for coralligenous formations (Figures 1.3.15a-d, “Coralligenous.jpg”) and mäerl beds (Figure 1.3.18a-d, “Maerl.jpg”). The spatial datasets underlying the maps are given here in several formats (raster, Google Earth, shapefile), all using the WGS 1984 datum (as coordinate system). The ESRI grid raster (floating point) has a spatial resolution of 0.004166 decimal degrees, and the values 0 and 1 correspond to the lowest and highest occurrence probabilities, respectively. The raster is also available as Google Earth compatible file (.kml format). The ESRI polygon shapefile presents the same information as the raster, but continuous values were classed in bins ranging from 0 to 10 (i.e. from lowest to highest occurrence probability). The work was financed through a service contract for the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG-MARE), 2011-2013.

Modelled Posidonia oceanica Distribution (2013) (Emodnet:mediseh_posidonia_model)

This dataset shows the modelled spatial distribution of Posidonia oceanica seagrass in the Mediterranean Sea. Posidonia oceanica is endemic to the Mediterranean Sea, where it is the dominant seagrass. It is found in sandy and rocky areas down to depths of about 45 m. P. oceanica is a protected species under European and international law, as well as several national legislations. The model was built based on an (observed) P. oceanica occurrence dataset extracted from a Mediterranean-wide database curated by Andrea Belluscio (University of Rome, Italy) - see Telesca et al. (2015) for further details. A Random Forest (i.e. a very effective Machine Learning technique) was trained on data from regions where information was available and then used to predict the probability of occurrence of P. oceanica where needed. Please refer to Scardi et al. (2013) for full details of the methodology used. The maps show interim model outputs, which are likely to be improved with additional species occurrence data. The data layers may be used (1) to guide cost-effective future survey efforts towards poorly sampled areas that are more likely to support these two habitats, (2) to inform marine spatial planning (including conservation planning), (3) to inform marine policy development, and (4) for initial screening as part of an environmental impact assessment. The data layer should not be used for spatial measures targeting fisheries, without prior groundtruthing.

Offshore Installations (EMODNet_HumanActivities:platforms)

The geodatabase on offshore installations in the EU was created in 2015 by Cogea for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is modelled on OSPAR's dataset on offshore installations, having the same fields and attributes. OSPAR monitors the development of offshore installations and maintains an updated inventory of all oil and gas offshore installations in the OSPAR maritime area, the OSPAR Oil and Gas Offshore inventory. The database includes the name and ID number, location, operator, water depth, production start, current status, category and function of the installation. At present more than 1500 offshore installations are operational in the OSPAR maritime area, most of them sub-sea steel installations and fixed steel installations. Contracting Parties with oil and gas industry offshore installations are: Denmark, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom.In addition, data on Italian offshore installations have been collected and harmonized from the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, and data on Polish and Russian installations from HELCOM. Coordinate data for oil platforms off the Polish coast is provided by MRCC Gdynia and for Russian data by Lukoil-Kaliningrad.

Marine Ecoregions of the World, provinces (coastline) (Ecoregions:provinces)

The Marine Ecoregions of the World, MEOW, is a biogeographic classification of the world's coasts and shelves. It is the first ever comprehensive marine classification system with clearly defined boundaries and definitions and was developed to closely link to existing regional systems. The ecoregions nest within the broader biogeographic tiers of Realms and Provinces. MEOW represents broad-scale patterns of species and communities in the ocean, and was designed as a tool for planning conservation across a range of scales and assessing conservation efforts and gaps worldwide. The current system focuses on coast and shelf areas (as this is where the majority of human activity and conservation action is focused) and does not consider realms in pelagic or deep benthic environment. It is hoped that parallel but distinct systems for pelagic and deep benthic biotas will be devised in the near future. The project was led by The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), with broad input from a working group representing key NGO, academic and intergovernmental conservation partners.

SeaVoX - Sea Areas Polygons (v16, 2015) (MarineRegions:seavox_v16)

SeaVoX is a combined SeaDataNet and MarineXML vocabulary content governance group, it is moderated by BODC (https://www.bodc.ac.uk/data/codes_and_formats/seavox/). This polygon data set defines the geographic extent of the terms specified by the SeaVoX vocabulary governance to describe coherent regions of the hydrosphere. It includes land masses enclosing freshwater bodies. The coastline data set used in the shapefile is taken from the World Vector Shoreline data set (scale 1:250,000). Reference for the data set: "polygon data set of the extent of water bodies from the SeaVoX Salt and Fresh Water Body Gazetteer, http://vocab.ndg.nerc.ac.uk/list/C19/current/" The data file follows a hierarchical structure with each region consisting of one or more polygons. This approach was adopted to avoid the need to have overlapping polygons in regions where a sea area included a number of sub-regions, for example the Mediterranean Sea includes the Aegean Sea, Ionian Sea etc. The following gives the level in the structure at which particular regions, which consist of more than one polygon can be found. This level in the structure is given by the polygon's attributes.

Shellfish Production (EMODNet_HumanActivities:shellfish)

The dataset provides information about the location of shellfish farms. It relies on the EUROSHELL project (http://www.euroshell-fp7.eu/Mapping-with-Sextant/Catalogue) for France, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK (for England and Wales only). Euroshell data come from professional, scientific and governmental sources (Associazione Mediterranea Acquacoltori in Italy, the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority in Ireland, the Comité National de la Conchyliculture and IFREMER in France, Wageningen in the Netherlands). Data for other countries were not available in the Euroshell database so we used the lists of registered production sites under Council Directive 2006/88/EC on animal health. Points represented in the map correspond to different definitions depending on the source. They represent farm sites in Denmark, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Spain and the UK while they represent the centre of production areas for France and the Netherlands.

Shipping (Commercial) (HumanImpact:shipping)

Commercial shipping activity can lead to ship strikes of large animals, noise pollution, and a risk of ship groundings or sinkings. Ships from many countries voluntarily participate in collecting meteorological data globally, and therefore also 7 report the location of the ship. We used data collected from 12 months beginning October 2004 (collected as part of the World Meteorological Organization Voluntary Observing Ships Scheme; http://www.vos.noaa.gov/vos_scheme.shtml) as this year had the most ships with vetted protocols and so provides the most representative estimate of global ship locations. The data include unique identifier codes for ships (mobile or a single datum) and stationary buoys and oil platforms (multiple data at a fixed location); we removed all stationary and single point ship data, leaving 1,189,127 mobile ship data points from a total of 3,374 commercial and research vessels, representing roughly 11% of the 30,851 merchant ships >1000 gross tonnage at sea in 2005 (S14). We then connected all mobile ship data to create ship tracks, under the assumption that ships travel in straight lines (a reasonable assumption since ships minimize travel distance in an effort to minimize fuel costs). Finally, we removed any tracks that crossed land (e.g. a single ship that records its location in the Atlantic and the Pacific would have a track connected across North America), buffered the remaining 799,853 line segments to be 1 km wide to account for the width of shipping lanes, summed all buffered line segments to account for overlapping ship tracks, and converted summed ship tracks to raster data. This produced 1 km2 raster cells with values ranging from 0 to 1,158, the maximum number of ship tracks recorded in a single 1 km2 cell. Because the VOS program is voluntary, much commercial shipping traffic is not captured by these data. Therefore our estimates of the impact of shipping are biased (in an unknown way) to locations and types of ships engaged in the program. In particular, high traffic locations may be strongly underestimated, although the relative impact on these areas versus low-traffic areas appears to be well-captured by the available data (Fig. S2), and areas identified as without shipping may actually have low levels of ship traffic. Furthermore, because ships report their location with varying distance between signals, ship tracks are estimates of the actual shipping route taken. http://www.nceas.ucsb.edu/globalmarine/impacts

Nationally defined shipping routes to harbours (Belgian part of North Sea, 2018) (Kustportaal:shippingroutes)

In addition to the frequently used routes for which IMO has created routeing systems, other important and frequently used shipping routes towards the ports or the Scheldt area exist in the BNS. These routes are used by ships because they are marked and/or dredged, guaranteeing a safe shipping depth.

Telecommunication Cables (actual route locations) - SIGCables Submarine Cables Routes (EMODNet_HumanActivities:sigcables)

The dataset on submarine telecom cables was created by Cogea in 2014 for the European Marine Observation and Data Network. The underlying data are collated from a variety of sources: SIGCables (managed by Orange), the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH Contis), and Greg's Cable Map (via Kis-Orca).The database contains lines representing actual cable routes locations.

Scheldt basin (Scheldemonitor:stroomgebied)

The basin of the Scheldt has an area of 21,860 km2 and is bordered by the North Sea, by a number of coastal basins north of the Seine and the Meuse and IJzer basin. The natural boundary of the basin on land is created by the topography of the area: the differences in elevation of the soil determine how and to which basin the water runs off and give it the boundary of the basin

Median grain size (BWZee:ug_rcmg_d50)

Multivariate geostatistics have been used to obtain a detailed and high-quality map of the median grain-size distribution of the sand fraction at the Belgian Continental Shelf. Sandbanks and swales are the dominant geomorphological features and impose high-spatial seafloor variability. Interpolation over complex seafloors is difficult and as such various models were investigated. In this paper, linear regression and ordinary kriging (OK) were used and compared with kriging with an external drift (KED) that makes use of secondary information to assist in the interpolation. KED proved to be the best technique since a linear correlation was found between the median grain-size and the bathymetry. The resulting map is more realistic and separates clearly the sediment distribution over the sandbanks from the swales. Both techniques were also compared with a simple linear regression of the median grain-size against the bathymetry. An independent validation showed that the linear regression yielded the largest average prediction error (almost twice as large as with KED). Unlike most static sedimentological maps, our approach allows for defining grain-size classes that can be adapted according to the needs of various applications. These relate mainly to the mapping of soft substrata habitats and of the most suitable aggregates for extraction. This information is highly valuable in a marine spatial planning context. Resolution of the map is 250m x 250 m.

Vegetation map (Sea Scheldt, 2011) (Scheldemonitor:vegetatiekaart2011)

The diversity and spread of several types of vegetation have been monitored by vegetation mappings. These mappings are done by both classic methods and remote sensing techniques. Classic methods use false colour IR aerial images to distinguish vegetation units, which receive a specific type based on the physiognomic system of dominant structural and species-related features. Remote sensing techniques use hyperspectral images. Here, a classification is made based on the properties of the pixels, which results in a typology to which different vegetation types can be connected. This connection is aided by collected ground data. The overhead flights are preferably done in August or September.
