Environment

Multibeam echosounder data and seabed sampling data acquired during the INSS and INFOMAR national seabed mapping programmes were the primary sources of data used in the generation of this marine habitat map. The original classes assigned to the data were translated to the EUNIS habitat classification system as part of the MESH Atlantic project.

Lineage Acoustic classes generated from analysis of MBES shaded relief and backscatter imagery, collected as part of the INSS national seabed mapping programme, were classified into seabed substrate classes using data from sediment samples. The original classes assigned to the data were translated to the EUNIS habitat classification system as part of the MESH Atlantic project.
