Sedimentary species data
Sedimentary species data

  • Warwick and Davis

  • Outer Bristol Channel

  • RWE

  • EA grab sampling

  • NE Lundy sediment surveys

  • Andy’s Grab sampling

  • Lundy Field Society fauna lists

  • Marine Recorder


Sediment and habitats data
Sediment and habitats data

  • Warwick and Davis Bristol channel sediments

  • BIOMOR 4 (Outer Bristol Channel survey)

  • Lundy habitat mapping surveys (Smith and Nunny 2008, Green 2012)

  • Andy’s Grabs

  • EA grab sampling


Data confidence
Data Confidence

  • Groundtruthing with stakeholders

  • Using data collected to national standards where available

    (e.g. Cefas, MMO, EA, NMBACQ Accredited consultancies, Statutory agencies, etc.)

  • Quality Assurance

    (double checking things are where they say they are, and what they say they are, MESH confidence intervals.)

  • Quality grading

    (saying how confident you are using different datasets)

  • Stacking

    (comparing different datasets collected in the same area to see if they agree)


Additional data can you help
Additional Data – Can you help?

  • Are we missing any important survey work?

    (see list on table for full data list)

  • Better understanding of activities and uses that leave a footprint on the sedimentary habitats (especially fisheries activity).

  • Better understanding of sediments.

  • Better and more detailed understanding of spawning and nursery areas.

  • Better understanding of management activities


Types of data we can take
Types of data we can take

Anything we can attach a specific or approximate spatial location to.

  • GIS (electronic mapping)

  • Spreadsheets

  • Paper records

  • Reports

  • Dive log records

  • Local knowledge and descriptions

    (drawing on maps)


Mapping important areas
Mapping important areas

What areas do you think are important and why?
