Marine sedimentary environment

Dataset

The dataset provides an overview of dominant sedimentary environments in the mapped area. This is an interpretation of the processes acting on and near the seabed in terms of deposition, transportation and leaching of sediments. The sedimentary environment data set is based on the maps for Seabed sediments (grain size) and Seabed sediments (genesis).

Specific usage

This data set can be used as basis for decision making in the overall land use and environmental planning, habitat mapping, vulnerability analyzes, impact analysis in connection with installations on the seabed etc.
