Anchoring and mooring conditions in some coastal areas with detailed data coverage, as interpreted from bottom type (hard or soft bottom) and depth. It is distinguished between anchoring and mooring conditions. In this context mooring means the possibility for divers to mount bolts into exposed bedrock (to fasten marine installations), usually at depths less than 30m. Anchoring conditions mean the anticipated relative hold of anchors in the substrate.
This data set can be used as basis for decision making in the overall land use and environmental planning, in connection with installations on the seabed etc. In addition to identifying areas of the seabed where anchoring is optimal, we also indicate areas where it is possible to fasten bolts (bedrock at depths down to 30 m). This dataset can be used by harbour authorities, fish farmers, and by vessels that wish to anchor in routine or emergency situations.
