UKSeaMap: the mapping of seabed and water column features of UK Seas 2006
This report summarises the methods used in identifying and mapping the seabed and water column features of UK seas through the UKSeaMap project.
The report also summarises the potential uses and limitations of the marine landscapes approach. The work undertaken has the potential to underpin important aspects of sustainable development in the marine environment in the future, including strategic and spatial planning, the establishment of networks of protected areas, and the development of a marine surveillance framework.
UKSeaMap started in November 2004 and was completed in autumn 2006. It was funded by the Countryside Council for Wales; Crown Estate; Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs; Department for Trade and Industry; English Nature, Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, Scottish Executive; and Worldwide Fund for Nature, and undertaken by JNCC.
