North Sea Interactive

The North Sea Interactive (NSI) project was an 8-month NERC funded project led by Heriot-Watt University, in collaboration with the BGS and NOC. The aim of the project was to develop a new decision-support tool that would translate existing marine environmental data into an interactive mapping product for the offshore oil and gas industry.

National Plant Monitoring Scheme, 2015 to 2016 dataset

D.B. Roy, N. Bunch, F. Harris, H. New, O.L. Pescott & K.J. Walker
This dataset contains data from the National Plant Monitoring Scheme between 2015 and 2016. These consist of plant species occurrences, with abundance values, in plots. Plots are nested with 1 km squares, and are georeferenced according to the British/Irish/Channel Islands grid systems, or in latitude/longitude format; the 1 km squares surveyed were selected according to a weighted-random design, designed to enrich the sample for semi-natural habitats. Plots also have associated habitat and spatial information, as...

Plant community basal data from a hedgerow cutting experiment in England, 2016

D. Stanbury, H.J. Dean, O.L. Pescott & Staley J.T
This dataset contains plant community data from a hedgerow experiment investigating the effects of cutting regimes on plant species richness. There were four sites, one in Buckinghamshire, two in Oxfordshire and one in Devon. Data were collected in 2016, using 1m x 10m quadrats on each side of the hedgerow at two positions. One quadrat was situated beneath the woody vegetation of the hedge (inner) and one adjacent to the inner quadrat (outer) to sample...

Benthic macrofauna abundance from megacore samples in Whittard Canyon during cruise JC036 during summer 2009.

Laetitia Gunton, Andrew J Gooday, Adrian Glover & Brian James Bett
Macrofauna and polychaete species abundance data were obtained from replicate megacore samples, collected from three branches inside the Whittard Canyon (N.E. Atlantic) and one site on the adjacent slope to the west of the canyon during cruise JC036 in June and July 2009. Samples were collected using a Megacorer. Four sites were sampled, three in the Whittard Canyon branches (Western, Central and Eastern) and one site on the slope to the west of the canyon....

Replicate sediment cores (n = 5) of size 20 cm by 20 cm and depth 12 cm...

An improved database of coastal flooding in the United Kingdom from 1915 to 2016.

Ivan David Haigh, Ozgun Ozsoy, Matthew P Wadey, Robert J Nicholls, Shari L Gallop, Thomas Wahl & Jenny Brown
Coastal flooding caused by extreme sea levels can produce devastating and wide-ranging consequences. The 'SurgeWatch' v1.0 database systematically documents and assesses the consequences of historical coastal flood events around the UK. The original database was inevitably biased due to the inconsistent spatial and temporal coverage of sea-level observations utilised. Therefore, we present an improved version integrating a variety of 'soft' data such as journal papers, newspapers, weather reports, and social media. SurgeWatch2.0 identifies 329 coastal...

Soil food webs, Successions - Jacobian Matrices

A.M Neutel, J.A.P Heesterbeek, J. Van De Koppel, G. Hoenderboom, A. Vos, C Kaldeway, F Berendese & P.C De Ruiter
The soil food webs in this collection represent a total of 32 belowground communities studied by Neutel et al. (2007), from two natural successions in sandy dune soils: one on the Waddensea Island of Schiermonnikoog in the north of the Netherlands and the other at Hulshorsterzand, on the Veluwe, in the central Netherlands. The study sites, which constitute the two gradients, represent four consecutive stages in chronosequences of early primary vegetation succession, increasing in aboveground...

Soil food webs, agro and native - Jacobian matrices

P.C De Ruiter, A.M Neutel & J.C Moore
The soil food webs in this collection represent seven belowground communities from native and agricultural soils. The seven communities are from experimental research sites in the USA, Sweden and the Netherlands. The Jacobians of the seven food webs were calculated by de Ruiter et al. (1995) using the empirical biomass data of the respective systems, and inferring steady-state biomass flow data using a procedure described by Hunt et al. (1987), see further references below. The...

Southern Ocean Freshwater Flux Field.

Daniel C Jones & Mark Hammond
The dataset comprises a derived freshwater flux field for the Southern Ocean. This flux field is the rate of freshwater (m-3s-1) entering each point of a grid covering the Southern Ocean, divided by the surface area (m-2) represented by each grid point, which gives a flux (m s-1) at each grid point. It was produced using up-to-date freshwater data from ice shelves, icebergs, and rivers over the period 2010-2015 and integrated over a surface encompassing...
