EMODnet seafloor geology data has been compiled by adapting Irish geological seafloor data at domain level to harmonized pan European data models depicting Sea floor Lithology/Age. Data displays the Pre Quaternary seabed geology of Irelands offshore, within the EMODNET boundary (based on Irelands EEZ) plus a 75Km buffer zone at a scale of 1:1Million. The seabed geology and contacts have been inferred by integrating a combination of geological and geophysical data and publications. The structural geology has been provided courtesy of Irelands Petroleum Affairs Division. A comprehensive attribute table has been compiled for age and lithology attribution, in which further detail can be found. This; 1:1 Million Geological Map of the Pre-Quaternary marine bedrock of Ireland has been compiled as part of the Irish obligation to the EMODNET project, WP4 Sea floor Geology.

Provenance information The EMODnet-Geology Project is one of seven that brings together information on the Geology, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Bathymetry, Seabed Habitats, and Human Activities in the European marine environment. During the preparatory phase of EMODnet (2009-2012), 14 organisations from 14 countries demonstrated that geological information could be compiled and harmonised at 1:1 million scale to provide map information and supporting data for parts of the regional seas of Europe. In 2013, an expanded group of mainly geological survey organisations from 30 countries was successful in being awarded the contract to deliver similar information for the entire European seas. This data displays the Pre Quaternary seabed geology of Irelands offshore, within the EMODNET boundary (based on Irelands EEZ) plus a 75Km buffer zone at a scale of 1:1Million. The seabed geology and contacts have been inferred by integrating a combination of geological and geophysical data and publications. The structural geology has been provided courtesy of the geological Survey of irelands Petroleum Affairs Division. A comprehensive attribute table has been compiled for age and lithology attribution, in which further detail can be found. This; 1:1 Million Geological Map of the Pre-Quaternary marine bedrock of Ireland has been compiled as part of the Irish obligation to the EMODNET project, WP4 Sea floor Geology.
