Broad-Scale Predictive Habitat Map - EUSeaMap2 (September 2016)
This layer is a predictive European Nature Information System (EUNIS) seabed habitat map clipped to the Scottish zone, with an extension to continental shelf limits west of Rockall. The map follows the EUNIS 2007-11 classification system where it is appropriate.
It is an output of the 2016 EUSeaMap broad-scale predictive model, produced by EMODnet Seabed Habitats. The map was produced using a "top-down" modelling approach using classified habitat descriptors (Biological zone, Energy class, Oxygen regime, Salinity regime, Seabed Substrate and Riverine input) to determine a final output habitat.
