Seabed mapping data from remote sensing and groundtruth samples taken at East of Haig Fras Marine Conservation Zone from 2012 to 2015

As described in the manuscript entitled "Limitations of predicting substrate classes on a sedimentary complex but morphologically simple seabed" remotely sensed variables and ground truth samples were distributed as part of a seabed mapping exercise. This holding contains the four raster layers provided to all participants for the East of Haig Fras MCZ and the groundtruth samples. These four rasters are: Multibeam echosounder bathymetry, multibeam echosounder backscatter, modelled maximum current velocity at the seabed and...

Predictor variables and sedimentation rate samples used to predict sedimentation rates within the Baltic Sea from 1992 - 2017

Input data used to predict sedimentation rate for the Baltic Sea. Observation data includes: Sedimentation rate data derived from isotope 137Cs tracers and pseudo-samples of zero sedimentation rate randomly placed in areas of rocky habitat. Sixteen predictor variables were considered for use in the sedimentation rate model. These were: Bathymetric Position Index (at three neighbourhood sizes); the Standard Deviation of bathymetry (at three neighbourhood sizes); Distance from Rivers (three layers representing different river catchment sizes);...

Plankton Imager zooplankton data, acoustic fish biomass estimates, chlorophyll measurements and CTD data from the Celtic Sea and Western English Channel in October 2018

Zooplankton species and size data from the Plankton Imager taken from the Celtic Sea and Western English Channel onboard the RV “Cefas Endeavour” in October 2018, also included are pelagic fish biomass estimates from acoustics, chlorophyll measurements and temperature and salinity data from CTDs. All data were recorded as part of the annual PELTIC survey (Pelagic ecosystem in the western English Channel and eastern Celtic Sea). During the day, multifrequency acoustic data are acquired along...

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...

Fish observation and length data derived from stereo-baited remote underwater videos collected around Saint Lucia in 2019

Analysed stereo-Baited Remote Underwater Videos (BRUVs) from the 2019 survey in the north west of St. Lucia. In total 87 1-hour BRUV stations were successfully deployed to a maximum depth of 100m. Video classification assessed fish MaxN (number of visible individuals in a single frame) by species and measured all fish lengths at MaxN. This data holding contains: The exported files from Eventmeasure for all 87 stations (3DPoints, ImagePtPair, Info, Lengths, MovieSeq, Period, Points and...

Trophic interaction data and taxonomic information for fish predators and their prey spanning the North East Atlantic and its marginal seas between 1836-2013

Taxonomic information and the diet matrix for fish species-size-classes (rows) and their prey (columns) used to produce feeding guilds via cluster analysis for Thompson et al. (2020) ‘A feeding guild indicator to assess environmental change impacts on marine ecosystem structure and functioning’. Journal of Applied Ecology. The purpose of this study was to propose a food web indicator which has been explicitly called for to inform policy via food web status assessment as part of...

Vanuatu Water Quality Dataset - 2016-2018

Dataset supporting a baseline assessment of marine water quality around Vanuatu, South Pacific. As part of the Commonwealth Marine Economies Programme, water quality measurements were collected over three years in the coastal waters around the island of Efate, and on one occasion around the island of Tanna. Observations focus on Port Vila (Efate), which is the main urbanised area on the Island. Key water quality parameters are presented (salinity, temperature, turbidity and total suspended solids,...

CLiP Belize Microplastics in sediment 2019

This dataset contains 2 csv file. BelizeSedimentMicroplastics.csv file reports data on microplastic abundance in sediment expressed in number of particles for 5g sediment. Sediment was collected at six locations in Belize between May and June 2019, but only four were analysed for microplastics due to time restrictions (only PSA reported for the two sites left). The file also reports information on blank used for calculations, grab GPS coordinates, deployment time and the particulate size analysis...

The number of items and the weight in kg is reported for each litter category. The list of litter categories was obtain merging OSPAR and Tangaroa Blue protocols with the addition of region-specific items. Item categories marked with '*' were added during the operations in...

Benthic Genera Presence and Absence in the North Sea from 1990 to 2011

Distribution data for benthic genera in the North Sea, covering a 22-year timespan from 1990 to 2011. This data accompanies the manuscript “Capturing threshold responses of marine benthos along gradients of natural and anthropogenic change”, by E. Couce, G.H. Engelhard and M. Schratzberger, Journal of Applied Ecology, in press. It was obtained from re-analysis of OBIS benthic data supplemented with benthic survey data collected by Cefas in the same period, with the study region partitioned...
