Cefas Fishing Survey 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. The Fishing Survey System (FSS) is a purpose–built database used to hold and maintain Cefas fish survey data, primarily from government mandated surveys. This SQL database holds the main research and charter vessel fishing surveys data from 1901 to present. It includes station,...

Cefas Fisheries Ecology Research Programme

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. Diurnal and seasonal changes in water temperature in South Wales estuaries and saltmarshes. Data were collected in 1995 and 1996 from three estuarine locations in South Wales during a study of the thermal experience and tolerance of estuarine animals. The data comprise hourly...

Fladen experimental fishing impact recovery data - Seabed imagery analysis

Total counts and derived abundance codes of individual taxa identified from video files still photographs of the seabed and total counts of nephrops burrows identified from video files, with associated station information. The digital video and still photographs were acquired from cameras mounted on a camera sledge frame at sampling stations located within six experimental boxes (three treatments and three control) during a fishing impact recovery survey within the Fladen Grounds. Data were collected at...

Monthly average non-algal Suspended Particulate Matter concentrations

Tiago Silva
Spatially gridded, monthly average of non-algal Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM). Based on satellite derived Ifremer OC5 algorithm (Gohin et al 2011). Interpolated and merged data from SeaWiFS, MODIS, MERIS and VIIRS satellite sensors. Based on Gohin et al (2005) OC5 algorithm that jointly estimates the load of Chlorophyll and non-algal suspended particulate matter. This algorithm has been validated against in-situ coastal observations for the English Channel and Bay of Biscay (Gohin, 2011) and modified to...

Quantitative sediment composition predictions for the north-west European continental shelf

Spatial predictions of the fractions of mud, sand and gravel as continuous response variables for the north-west European continental shelf. Mud, sand and gravel fractions range from 0-1 (i.e. 0-100%). These fractions were generated from two additive log-ratios (ALR), ALRs and ALRm which are independent, unconstrained response variables. These raw predictions as rasters are also included presented in the attached dataset. Predicted fractions have been combined to predict the likely sediment classification based on the...

Reconstruction of North Sea trawling effort 1985-2015

Spatial distribution of total international otter and beam trawling fishing effort, for all ICES rectangles (0.5 degree latitude by 1 degree longitude) of the North Sea, covering a 31-year time span from 1985 to 2015. The dataset was largely reconstructed using compiled effort data from 7 fishing effort time-series and completed by estimations of missing data. Lat and Long coordinates in the data represent the centre of each ICES rectangle. For the 31-year period from...

Seawater salinity 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 Salinity at sea surface and near sea bed for the North West European Shelf from 1st January 1985 to 30th June 2014 at 7 Km spatial resolution. Monthly and seasonal trend values were generated by applying a Generalised Additive Model (GAM) on a time series of modelling output data for Salinity at 7 Km spatial resolution from the North West Shelf...

CLiP Solomon Islands Marine Litter Abundance and Composition

This dataset contains 2 csv files. The file Solomon_Marine_Litter_Data.csv contains data on litter found on marine beaches in Solomon Islands between November 2018 and January 2019. The number of itemsis 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, which are marked with '*'. An array of metadata (location names, survey date, GPS coordinates in decimal degrees) is also reported...
