Environment

Upper water mass movement of ocean currents from the Irish Offshore Strategic Environmental Assessment (IOSEA 5). Large masses of moving water are called currents. In the oceans there are major surface currents, subsurface currents, and tidal currents. This data represents an analysis of the mass movement of water in the upper sections of the water column. Currents in the upper water column are known as the North Atlantic Current and Shelf edge current.

Lineage Upper water mass movement listed as having been derived from various sources. There is a reference to the M. White & P. Bowyer 1997 paper on The shelf-edge current north-west Ireland in the same section in the report (paper https://hal-insu.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal-00316312/document). Data can be considered a general representation of upper mass movement with DCCAE as owner with source Second Strategic Environmental Assessment for Oil & Gas Activity in Irelands Offshore Atlantic Waters: IOSEA2 Porcupine Basin - Environmental Report (2007).
