Maerl beds distribution in the Portuguese mainland from historical data. Data published in: “Present distribution of maerl beds in the Atlantic Iberian Peninsula”. Museologia Scientifica e Naturalista. Volume Speciale 2009
Bathymetric data resulting from hydrographic surveys for cartographic purposes and/or port management. Surveys carried out in accordance with the IHO S-44 standard.
Units: umol/l. Method: spatial interpolation produced with DIVA (Data-Interpolating Variational Analysis). URL: http://modb.oce.ulg.ac.be/DIVA. Comment: Every year of the time dimension corresponds to a 10-year centred average for each season : - winter season (December-February), - spring (March-May), - summer (June-August), - autumn (September-November). Diva settings: Snr=1.0, CL=0.7.
The DTM is produced with Kongsberg multibeam echosounder survey, acquired in March 2020 by Marine Research Ltd. The resolution is 1/256 arc-minutes (~7.2m). It is located at Tuzla, Romania, on the coastal region of the Black Sea. Depths are referenced to the Local Sea Level - Marea Neagra 1975 and the coordinates are expressed into the WGS84 reference frame.
Gridded product for visualization of Water body dissolved oxygen concentration in the Black Sea generated by DIVA 4.6.11 using all EMODNET Chemistry data from 1970 to 2014. Depth range (IODE standard depths): 0 – 250m. DIVA settings: signal-to-noise ratio and correlation length were estimated using data mean distance as a minimum (for L), and both parameters vertically filtered. Background field: the data mean value is subtracted from the data. Detrending of data: no. Advection constraint applied: no. Every year of the time dimension corresponds to a 10-year centred average for each season: - winter: December - February, - spring: March - May, - summer: June - August, - autumn: September – November Units: umol/l
EMODnet Chemistry aims to provide access to marine chemistry data sets and derived data products concerning eutrophication, ocean acidification and contaminants. The chemicals chosen reflect importance to the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). This regional aggregated dataset contains all unrestricted EMODnet Chemistry data on contaminants (20 parameters), and covers the North East Atlantic Ocean with 2400 CDI records divided per matrices: 122 in biota (as time series), 1689 in water (as vertical profiles), 589 in sediment (478 Vertical profiles and 111 Time series). Vertical profiles temporal range is from 1970-07-29 to 2017-02-28. Time series temporal range is from 1979-02-28 to 2014-10-21. Data were aggregated and quality controlled by ‘IFREMER / IDM / SISMER - Scientific Information Systems for the SEA’ from France. Regional datasets concerning contaminants are automatically harvested. Parameter names in these datasets are based on P01, BODC Parameter Usage Vocabulary, which is available at: http://seadatanet.maris2.nl/bandit/browse_step.php . Each measurement value has a quality flag indicator. The resulting data collections for each Sea Basin are harmonised, and the collections are quality controlled by EMODnet Chemistry Regional Leaders using ODV Software and following a common methodology for all Sea Regions. Harmonisation means that: (1) unit conversion is carried out to express contaminant concentrations with a limited set of measurement units (according to EU directives 2013/39/UE; Comm. Dec. EU 2017/848) and (2) merging of variables described by different “local names” ,but corresponding exactly to the same concepts in BODC P01 vocabulary. The harmonised dataset can be downloaded as ODV spreadsheet (TXT file), which is composed of metadata header followed by tab separated values. This worksheet can be imported to ODV Software for visualisation (More information can be found at: https://www.seadatanet.org/Software/ODV ). The same dataset is offered also as XLSX file in a long/vertical format, in which each P01 measurement is a record line. Additionally, there are a series of columns that split P01 terms in subcomponents (measure, substance, CAS number, matrix...).This transposed format is more adapted to worksheet applications users (e.g. LibreOffice Calc). The 20 parameter names in this metadata record are based on P02, SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary, which is available at: http://seadatanet.maris2.nl/v_bodc_vocab_v2/vocab_relations.asp?lib=P02 . Detailed documentation will be published soon. The original datasets can be searched and downloaded from EMODnet Chemistry Download Service: https://emodnet-chemistry.maris.nl/search
High resolution composite DTM based on single beam, multi beam and Lidar covering the Weser and Weser approach. All data acquired in the years 2010-2017.
Saccorhiza polyschides distribution in the Portuguese mainland from historical data. Data provided by the Project FindKelp and published in: “Findkelp, a GIS-based Community Participation Project to Assess Portuguese Kelp Conservation Status”. Journal of Coastal Research (2009) :SI 56 (1469-1473)
The DTM is produced with Kongsberg multibeam echosounder survey, acquired in March 2020 by Marine Research Ltd. The resolution is 1/256 arc-minutes (~7.2m). It is located at 23 August, Romania, on the coastal region of the Black Sea. Depths are referenced to the Local Sea Level - Marea Neagra 1975 and the coordinates are expressed into the WGS84 reference frame.
