Data product: Numerical abundance of benthic macroinvertebrates in North Sea and Baltic Sea

Added on 2021-02-08 12:37:26 by Beja, Joana
We have developed more than 1000 abundance maps in a selection of benthic species living on the North and Baltic Seas.

The present data product shows a compiled dataset of more than 80000 samples containing the numerical abundance of more than 4000 benthic species that have been found in the North Sea and Baltic Sea. For all species with a frequency exceeding 100 samples, a gridded abundance raster map has been created with a spatial resolution of 1 degree. All of this data comes from the EMODnet-Biology occurrences database.
This data product was developed by Deltares and VLIZ during the EMODnet Biology WP4 data products workshop in June 2020. The aim was to reconstruct and expand the data product created by Beauchard, O.; Troupin, C.; (2018). You can find more information via the link.
