A series of news products released by EMODnet Geology
The EMODnet Geology team recently released a series of products related to topics including Seafloor geology, Marine minerals, Seabed substrates, Geological Events and Probabilities and Submerged landscape features.
The new Seafloor geology data layers show the underlying geology from the Ancient Past (more than 2500 Million years ago) to Quaternary deposits and modern geomorphological features, and therefore map Earth’s evolution in the European marine part. Illustrated by the Marine minerals data layer is a broad ranging systematic mapping of recorded marine minerals known to accumulate in seas surrounding Europe.
New multiscale maps of Seabed substrate illustrate seabed properties at 50k, 100k, 250k as well as 1M scales. Twelve new GIS data layers on Geological Events and Probabilities were added, representing a systematic collection of harmonised data concerning geological events, providing information on the type of events that have taken place in the past and might potentially occur again. Finally, the layer on Submerged landscapes shows a compilation of submerged landscape features and palaeo-environmental indicators, including estimated age where known.
