  • EMOD-PACE Deliverable 4.4 (3 MB) - December 2022: This report details the collaborative effort between partners from Europe and China to deliver the first broad-scale habitat map for a Chinese sea basin, using the EUNIS (European Nature Information System) approach. The case study site selected for this work covers part of the Beibu Gulf, located in the north-western parts of the South China Sea. Included is a summary of the methodology used, as well as a presentation of the habitat map, its input layers and associated confidence assessments. Furthermore, discussed are limitations of the approach, applicability to Chinese sea basins and proposed next steps to improve in this work.
