Proposed Nature Conservation Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) contributing to the MPA Network (SNH WMS)

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

The Marine Protected Area (MPA) network in Scotland’s Seas is designed to conserve a selection of marine biodiversity (species and habitats) and geodiversity (the variety of landforms and natural processes that underpin the marine landscapes), offering long-term support for the services our seas provide to society.

Scottish Ministers designated a suite of Nature Conservation Marine Protected Areas to conserve some of Scotland's most important marine wildlife, habitats and geodiversity. Nature Conservation MPAs will play an important role in delivering a healthy, productive and biologically diverse marine environment for Scotland.

This layer is a Web Map Service (WMS) displaying proposed Nature Conservation MPAs.

Normalised annual anomalies of sea surface temperature (°C) up to 2016 (relative to 2000–2010 base period), for Scotland's Long Coastal Temperature time series, by SMR

The Scottish Ocean Climate Status Report 2016 described the status of the physical conditions in the seas around Scotland in 2016 and examined the variability and trends in the last decade, and further into the past. Figures showing time series of a number of variables were extracted fromthis report and added as tooltips to the the Scottish Marine Regions, the Charting Progress 2 Regional Seas, and four water masses (North Atlantic Water, NAW; Modified North Atlantic Water, MNAW; Fair Isle Current, FIC and Cooled Atlantic Waters, CAW)
