    This is a compilation of OSPAR habitat point data for the northeast Atlantic submitted by OSPAR contracting parties. The compilation is coordinated by the UK's Joint Nature Conservation Committee, working with a representative from each of the OSPAR coastal contracting parties. This public dataset does not contain records relating to sensitive species (e.g. Ostrea edulis) in specific areas, or where data are restricted from public release by the owner's use limitations. This version (v2022) was published in September 2023.

    The Global Mangrove Watch (GMW) was initiated as part of the JAXA Kyoto & Carbon Initiative in 2011. It is led by Aberystwyth University and solo Earth Observation, in collaboration with Wetlands International, the International Water Management Institute and the UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre (U.K.). The African part is supported by DOB Ecology through the Mangrove Capital Africa project. The GMW aims to provide geospatial information about mangrove extent and changes to the Ramsar Convention, national wetland practitioners, decision makers and NGOs. It is part of the Ramsar Science and Technical Review Panel (STRP) work plan for 2016-2018 and a Pilot Project to the Ramsar Global Wetlands Observation System (GWOS), which is implemented under the GEO-Wetlands Initiative. The primary objective of the GMW has been to provide countries lacking a national mangrove monitoring system with first cut mangrove extent and change maps, to help safeguard against further mangrove forest loss and degradation. The GMW has generated a global baseline map of mangroves for 2010 using ALOS PALSAR and Landsat (optical) data, and changes from this baseline for epochs between 1996 and 2020 derived from JERS-1 SAR, ALOS PALSAR and ALOS-2 PALSAR-2. Annual maps are planned from 2018 and onwards.

    A survey by JNCC in partnership with Cefas to Wight Barfleur Reef Special Area of Conservation. Located in the central English Channel, Wight Barfleur Reef is characterised by a series of well-defined exposed bedrock ridges, up to 5 m high, together with areas of flat, smooth mudstone and sandstone with overlying coarse sediment (gravels, cobbles and boulders), which in places forms stony reef, which has been designated to protect the EU Habitats Directive (1992) Annex I habitat feature Reefs.

    Natural England contracted Footprint Ecology to undertake a vegetation survey of Shingle and associated structures across a range of sites in the Solent area of southern England in 2013. This was designed to be at least partially comparable to the original survey of Solent vegetated shingle sites carried out by Cox and Crowther in 2000 (Cox and Crowther 2001). The methodology was based on the National Vegetation Classification, with additional communities identified by Cox and Crowther. Data were collected using NVC quadrats across the surveyed sites. These quadrats were geolocated using hand held GPS. Vegetated shingle communities were found at all the sites visited.

    This dataset contains the findings from the analyses of data gathered during a seabed survey of Scanner Pockmark SCI. The pockmark and unit pockmark features present are a series of crater-like depressions on the seafloor. These structures consist of large blocks, pavements, slabs and smaller fragments of carbonate rock, including methane-derived authigenic carbonate (MDAC). The features are classified as the Directives Annex I habitat Submarine structures made by leaking gases even in the absence of MDAC as the qualifying feature has been recorded in the past, and the presence of leaking gases is inferred from high reflectance backscatter data.

    This dataset includes the findings from the seabed survey of the Braemar Pockmarks and Scanner Pockmark Sites of Community Importance (SCI), as defined in the European Commission Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC. The pockmark features present within both of the SCIs are a series of crater-like depressions on the seafloor, and can include the Directives Annex I habitat Submarine structures made by leaking gases. These structures consist of large blocks, pavements, slabs and smaller fragments of carbonate rock, including methane-derived authigenic carbonate (MDAC).

    This map was produced using data from the South-west Regional Coastal Monitoring Programme, commissioned by Teignbridge District Council, in this case covering the coastline between Rame Head and Lands End. Through conducting a range of surveys including aerial, bathymetric, wave and tidal surveys, and ecological mapping, the programme aims to promote and implement a repeatable, standard, and cost-effective method of monitoring the coastal environment. This map is the result of the ecological mapping component of the programme, and the habitat data is presented as vector polygons using the EUNIS 2007-11 habitat classification scheme.

    This dataset is derived from the findings of a dedicated survey by JNCC in partnership with Cefas to Wight Barfleur Reef Special Area of Conservation. The dedicated multidisciplinary survey (survey code CEND 03/13) was conducted in March 2013 aboard the RV Cefas Endeavour with the principal aim of collecting information to better delineate the extent of Annex I reef (both bedrock and stony subtypes) within the area, which will be used to assist with the development of management advice in relation to the areas and features designated for conservation. The survey was successful in acquiring multibeam, sidescan and ground-truthing data of the seabed. Although full data coverage of the whole cSAC was not possible in the time available, five areas were targeted for intensive survey, with 100% acoustic data coverage of these areas.
