Advanced environmental monitoring solutions for the oil and gas industry in the Atlantic Margin
Long-term measurements of ocean temperature, salinity seabed stress, sediment type and metal concentrations held by the NERC will be merged with data on benthos from the Atlantic Margin.
Maps of baseline levels of environmental and biological variability will be produced to help industry achieve best environmental practice and help the UK meet its obligations to OSPAR and the MSFD. An interactive GIS tool will also be created with data layers of bottom seabed classifications and benthos including actual industry images and video.
