The Scottish Government is consulting on the creation of a Deep Sea Marine Reserve in the Rockall Trough off the West Coast of Scotland. If taken forward to designation, the site would be underpinned by the powers in the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009. This means in legal terms it would have the same status as the other existing Marine Protected Areas in offshore waters. The Rockall Trough, if designated would help meet our international commitments to protect the marine environment in the North-East Atlantic, as required under the OSPAR Convention.

Distribution of impulsive noise events, Total Pulse Block Days (PBD) for 2015-2017 (time-aware)

The UK Marine Noise Registry (MNR) is a database that records the spatial and temporal distribution of loud, low to medium frequency (10Hz – 10kHz) impulsive noise generating activities in UK seas. This layer shows the distribution of impulsive noise events for Scotland's seas, extracted from the MNR and shown in Total Pulse Block Days (PBD) per year for 2015-2017.

This layer is timeaware on MS Maps NMPi and is intended to be updated yearly.
