Volumes, dredged area measurements and estimated contaminants of material disposed at licensed offshore sites around the UK coast from 2000 to 2020
The dataset contains data related to registered offshore sediment disposal sites around the UK coast and includes volumes of disposed material, dredged areas, calculated levels of contaminants in the disposal material and licence details. Data were collated for the years 2000 to 2020. The Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) on behalf of Department for environment, food and rural affairs (Defra), report these data for the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland),...

The colonization of Ireland by mammals, has been the subject of extensive study using genetic methods, and forms a central problem in understanding the phylo-geography of European mammals after the Last Glacial Maximum. Ireland exhibits a de-pauperate mammal fauna relative to Great Britain and continental Europe, and a range of natural and anthropogenic processes have given rise to its modern fauna. Previous Europe-wide surveys of the European badger (Meles meles) have found conflicting microsatellite and...
Inputs of mercury, cadmium and lead via water and air to the Greater North Sea between 1990 and 2014
The data shows the input loads of mercury, cadmium and lead via water and air to the Greater North Sea between 1990 and 2014. The data are separated by input loads from the UK, the OSPAR countries and other countries outside the OSPAR area. The data are presented in two CSV files. One is called datametal inputs indicator assessment and the other in called RIDDataInputHgCdPbIndicatorAssessment. The former provides the yearly input loads of the three...
