Description: 

This dataset shows maps of the sediment properties and physical environment of the seabed on the northwest European Continental Shelf. Mapped products are: mud, sand and gravel percentages; rock cover; whole-sediment, sand- and gravel-fraction median grain sizes; porosity and permeability; carbon and nitrogen content of sediments; mean and maximum depth-averaged tidal velocity and wave orbital-velocity; monthly natural disturbance rates.

Data products are produced at a spatial resolution of 0.125 by 0.125 degrees.
