Discrete samples for chlorophyll (by...

Connectivity matrices for seven benthic species

Cefas
These are connectivity matrices calculated from the results of Lagrangian models (GITM forced with GETM) for the period 2001-2010 and for seven benthic species: Alcyonium digitatum, Echinus esculentus, Lophelia pertusa, Metridium senile var. dianthus, Porifera, Mythilus edulis and Crepidula fornicata. The paper describing the calculation of these matrices and the analysis can be found in: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-32912-2.The data were produced by analysing the results of the Lagrangian model GITM. The connectivity was calculated between the sectors...
