This dataset shows sea bottom risk areas for mines sunk in the World War II. The big areas in Danish and German areas as well as in the Gdansk Bay are British flight mine areas. This dataset was created by the HELCOM Expert Group on Environmental Risks of Hazardous Submerged Objects (SUBMERGED). SUBMERGED works to compile and assess information about all kinds of hazardous objects and assess the associated risks. The dataset was provided by Gunnar Möller (Mine Warfare Data Center (C MWDC), 4th Naval Warfare Flottilla, Berga, Sweden) for the HELCOM Maritime Assessment published in 2018.
