OSPAR Intermediate Assessment 2017 - Pressures from Human Activities (2)

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

The OSPAR Intermediate Assessment (IA) 2017 details human pressures on the North-East Atlantic, their effects and the implications for biological diversity of this marine area.  Some of the indicators of pressure were reported in the OSPAR Quality Status Report (QSR) 2010 but have been refined such that in the IA 2017 there is a significant regional component to the assessment.

The OSPAR North-East Atlantic area has 5 regions. The majority of Scotland’s seas, within the EEZ, are within OSPAR Region III – Celtic Seas (west coast) and Region II – Greater North Sea (east coast). There are also parts of Scotland’s seas within Region V – wider Atlantic and Region I – Arctic waters.

The layers show the boundaries of the OSPAR Regions, with additional centroid points that include HTML with URLs to the OSPAR Intermediate Assessment webpages. Designed for use with MS Maps.

Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) - Dinoflagellates - 1958 to 2015

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

The Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) is a robust and reliable instrument designed to capture plankton samples over huge areas of ocean. The CPR is usually towed from the stern of volunteer merchant ships such as RoRo and Container Ships.  Marine Scotland hold some datasets from The Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science (SAHFOS) including the GIS data for the CPR data where they intersect with Scottish waters.

This layer displays total dinoflagellates (all dinoflagellate taxa aggregated per sample) expressed as abundance categories below or above the average plus or minus the standard deviation.

All data should be cited as Hélaouët, P. 2017. SAHFOS
