Marine Habitat Maps for Celtic & North Seas

The European Marine Observation and Data Network have launched a pilot mapping portal that shows broadscale predicted marine habitats for Europe’s seas. As well as the Celtic Sea and North Sea, the portal includes the Baltic Sea and the Western Mediterranean, covering over 2 million square kilometers in total. A consortium of 7 international partners, led by the JNCC, developed data layers and thresholds to allow the modelling of habitats according the EUNIS classification.

JNCC welcome comments on the portal; please use the feedback options on the portal, or use the quick questionnaire provided.
