UKSeaMap 2016 has been generated by JNCC and is a by-product of the 2013-2016 activities of the EMODnet Seabed Habitats 2013-2016 consortium. It is a composite of two broad-scale habitat maps, arranged in the following priority order: 1. A roughly 100 m* resolution broad-scale habitat map, which covers the majority of the UK shelf area. 2. EUSeaMap 2016, a coarser resolution** broad-scale habitat map, which covers all European seas (view/download on the EMODnet Seabed Habitats interactive map). Both of these datasets have been created using identical methods; the only difference is in the resolution of the seabed substrate input data and the source and resolution of the depth data. Classification systems: EUNIS habitat classification system, with additional deep sea zones MSFD predominant habitats The Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Input data layers: Seabed substrate type Depth to the seabed Amount of light reaching the seabed Wave disturbance at the seabed Kinetic energy at the seabed caused by tidal currents and waves Outputs: Predictive seabed habitat map Confidence layers The map follows the EUNIS 2007-11 classification system where it is appropriate.
EMODnet Physics - PSAL_002 - near real time salinity in the water column from multi platforms observations. The product presents the latest 7, 60 days and 12 months of measurements from fixed and moving platforms.
Global mapped climatologies of temperature using the Data Interpolating Variational Analysis (DIVA) mapping method. This product covers all ocean basins over the years 1972 to 2013, and provides vertically interpolated data onto 33 standard depth surfaces, and gridded by bin averaging in each 1° × 1° grid cell. This product is based on the GLODAP (Global Ocean Data Analysis Project) dataset v2.2016b, built with surface-to-bottom ocean biogeochemical bottle data
EMODnet Physics - TSM_BalticSea - Concentration of total suspended matter (conc_tsm, mg/l) is a product of the Coastcolour L2W Concentrations Data, obtained from the OC4 algorithm for clear and moderate turbid waters, and from the CoastColour v1 neural network.The L2W product was then remapped on a regular grid, maintaining the 300 m full resolution, in order to obtain L3 products over the Baltic Sea and monthly averaged. Developed by EMODnet Physics.

In situ data for global winds at sea/ground level. This product provides the user with in situ data of the last 60 days. Wind speed is presented in false-colour.
Operational in situ river outflow data. The product includes near real time data from European river stations.
EMODnet Physics - TEMP_002 - Near real-time temperature of the water column from multi-platform observations. The product presents the latest 7, 60 days and 12 months of measurements from fixed and moving platforms.
The EMODnet Bathymetry World Coastline is available as a WFS service from EMODnet Bathymetry. The service URL is: https://ows.emodnet-bathymetry.eu/wfs. The layer contains vector lines derived from land polygons available from OpenStreetMap. The original source url is https://osmdata.openstreetmap.de/. Parts of these polygons have been modified for use in EMODnet Bathymetry. In addition to the OSM EMODnet default coastline, three sub-layers are available as part of the EMODnet world coastline service. These sub-layers contain the best-estimate coastlines for Europe determined by Dutch research institute Deltares from satellite data (typically Sentinel-2 and Landsat-8) and in combination with the Global Tide Surge Model (GTSM) processed into digital coastlines for the European seas at LAT (Lowest Astronomical Tide), MSL (Mean-Sea-Level), and MHW (Mean-High-Water). The level of detail is bound to the resolution of the satellite sensor (e.g. 10m for Sentinel-2). The latest December 2020 version now covers the entire coastline of Europe. A detailed paper is available describing the methodology used to determine the three versions of the satellite derived coastline: https://emodnet.ec.europa.eu/sites/emodnet.ec.europa.eu/files/public/20201219_emodnet_bathymetry_satellite_derived_coastline_report.pdf
In Situ Relative Sea Level Trends. Trend is presented by means of false color arrows. This product (developed for EMODnet Physics) uses the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) data bank on sea level data from the global network of tide gauges since 1900. The trend is available for stations with at least 30 years of measurements.
