  • This dataset contains all PFOS in biota monitoring station locations, observed matrix, biota matrix and monitored species as reported to HELCOM secretariat by HELCOM Contracting Parties by 2016.

  • This dataset contains all heavy metal monitoring station locations, observed matrix, biota matrix and monitored species as reported to HELCOM secretariat by HELCOM Contracting Parties by 2016.

  • This dataset contains all TBT in sediments monitoring station locationsas reported to HELCOM secretariat by HELCOM Contracting Parties by 2016.

  • This dataset contains all PAH in seawater station locationsas reported to HELCOM secretariat by HELCOM Contracting Parties by 2016.

  • Spawning area of cod in the Baltic Sea. The delineation of the spawning area is mainly based on Hüssy 2011. In addition, Gdansk deep (delineation based on Bagge et al. 1994) is included in the map, as it still sometimes contributes to reproduction of eastern Baltic cod stock ((Hinrichsen et al. 2016). Gotland basin has ceased to contribute to the reproduction of the Eastern Baltic cod due to oxygen deficiency and sedimentation related mortality (Hinrichsen et al. 2016).

  • This dataset contains all heavy metal monitoring station locations, observed matrix, biota matrix and monitored species as reported to HELCOM secretariat by HELCOM Contracting Parties by 2016.

  • Distribution of Fucus sp. based on data submission by HELCOM contracting parties. Mainly pointwise occurrences of Fucus were submitted, originally gathered in national mapping and monitoring campaigns, or for scientific research purposes. From Estonian waters, a predictive model was used (200m resolution), that was converted to presence/absence using minimized difference threshold (MDT) criteria. All data (Fucus points and the raster presenting predicted presence of Fucus) were generalized to 5km x 5km grid cells.

  • Esker islands (according to Habitats Directive Annex I) are glaciofluvial islands consisting mainly of relatively well sorted sand, gravel or less commonly of till. Also their underwater parts are included in the habitat. The distribution map is based on data submission by HELCOM contracting parties. Only Sweden and Finland reported occurrences of esker islands. Only underwater parts are included in the datasets. The data is based on modelling and GIS analysis. Data coverage, accuracy and the methods in obtaining the data vary between countries.

  • This dataset contains all heavy metal monitoring station locations where seawater samples are analysed. The information is based on data reported to HELCOM secretariat by HELCOM Contracting Parties by 2016.

  • The dataset contains data on bridges and other constructions. The dataset is constructed from Open Street Map “roads” shapefiles downloaded through Geofabrik by extracting all features where attribute bridges=1. It should be noted that the dataset contains major bridges and all other smaller constructions that have been classified as bridges in Open Street Map. The coverage for the dataset is whole Baltic.
