Provenance information The seasonal density driven transport, part of which appears to originate in or is derived from the 2003 Brown et al paper on Observations of the physical structure and seasonal jet-like circulation of the Celtic Sea and St. Georges Channel of the Irish Sea (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0278434303000086). The remainder of this layer, i.e. the remaining section around the western Irish coast, seems to be derived from dataset published https://www.researchgate.net/figure/223180445_fig3_Fig-10-Contours-of-bottom-density-s-t-kg-m-A3-derived-from-the-Scanfish-sections in the 2006 paper on The Irish coastal current: A seasonal jet-like circulation (Fernard, L. et al http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0278434306001646
