Cefas Plankton Analysis System

David Morris
This dataset has been extracted as part of an exercise to assemble "all" Cefas Temperature Data and publish it in a Data paper. It is one of 17 Cefas data sources assembled. Sampling of plankton has been carried out by Cefas since the 1940’s. In recent decades sampling has mainly been concentrated on fish eggs and larvae, and other zooplankton. Samples were collected using ‘high–speed towed nets’ that capture plankton from the surface to near–seabed....

Ferry Routes Monitoring System (Historical)

David Morris
This dataset has been extracted as part of an exercise to assemble "all" Cefas Temperature Data and publish it in a Data paper. It is one of 17 Cefas data sources assembled. Near surface temperature and salinity samples have been collected by ferries, the most recent, the Stena Partner, along 52°N between Harwich (formerly Felixstowe) and Rotterdam, from August 1970 onwards. Throughout the year, at weekly intervals, temperature data were recorded and water samples taken...

Trends and status of liver neoplasms in flatfish from UK waters collected between 2004 and 2015

These data are the results from histological analysis of liver neoplasms (lesions) found in flatfish taken from UK waters between 2004 and 2015. Data on the length, weight, sex and age of individuals are also included alongside the histological results. The 2016 assessment of the UK's Clean Seas Environment Monitoring Programme described the status and trends of contaminant concentrations and biological effects measurements in biota and sediment at monitoring stations in waters around the UK....

CLiP South Africa Microplastics in biota 2019

This dataset contains 3 csv files. One file (South_Africa_Biota_Microplastics.csv) reports the microplastic abundance in biota samples (anchovies, redeye round herring and sardines) collected and analysed in South Africa in 2019. The file contains data of the samples weight, length and number of microplastic items found. Fish is ordered by 'stratum' (geographical reference, please see South_Africa_Biota_Microplastics_Strata.doc). Fish of the same species in the same stratum were also stored in bags and a blank was measured in...

Seawater temperature trend analysis for the North East Atlantic (North West European Shelf)

This gridded data product provides a trend analysis to estimate the changes in Seawater Temperature at sea surface and near sea bed for the North West European Shelf for the period from 1st January 1985 to 30th June 2014 in degree Celsius. Monthly and seasonal trend values were generated by applying a Generalised Additive Model (GAM) on a time series of modelling output data for Temperature at 7 Km spatial resolution from the North West...

CLiP Solomon Islands Microplastics in sediment 2017

There is a .zip file that includes a csv file...

UK shelf and North Sea quantitative sediment composition predictions

Oliver Williams
Spatial predictions of substrate composition for the UK shelf and North Sea. Compositional fractions of mud, sand and gravel were modelled for an area of the UK and North Sea using a statistical regression model. This dataset consists of percentage composition predictions for the mud, sand and gravel components as raster tifs. In addition the proportion of each of these sediment components were combined to predict the likely sediment classification as both a EUNIS habitat...
