  • The data set is showing areas where estuaries occurs in the Baltic Sea area as points used for the BRISK project (Sub-regional risk of spill of oil and hazardous substances in the Baltic Sea, http://www.brisk.helcom.fi/). This dataset has been produced by COWI (http://www.cowi.dk) based on data collected from Finland (Copyright: SYKE). The dataset includes data provided by the BRISK Project Partner organisations from various Baltic Sea countries. The detailed documentation of what partner provided what data is given in the Annex of the document: 70618-3.1.2.2 Data Collection Report. Estuaries have a high biodiversity. They are important breeding and foraging areas for many birds and reproduction areas for many fish species. Stranded oil may degrade slowly and the risk for damage to the habitat is high during clean up actions. The organisms encountered in the habitat are generally very vulnerable to oil.

  • The data set is showing spawning areas with pelagic fish eggs in the Baltic Sea area as polygons used for the BRISK project (Sub-regional risk of spill of oil and hazardous substances in the Baltic Sea, http://www.brisk.helcom.fi/). This dataset has been produced by COWI (http://www.cowi.dk) based on data from HELCOM and COWI. Fish-egg and larvae are sensitive to oil dissolved in the water phase.

  • The data set is indicating important spots where sea- and shore birds breed in the Baltic Sea area. This dataset depicts breeding areas of birds as lines used for the BRISK project (Sub-regional risk of spill of oil and hazardous substances in the Baltic Sea, http://www.brisk.helcom.fi/). This dataset has been produced by COWI (http://www.cowi.dk) based on data collected from Latvia. The dataset includes data provided by the BRISK Project Partner organisations from various Baltic Sea countries. The detailed documentation of what partner provided what data is given in the Annex of the document: 70618-3.1.2.2 Data Collection Report. About 20 species of seabirds breed along the coast of thee Baltic. The Archipelago areas in Finland and Sweden are the most important breeding areas. They are very vulnerable to oil spill. The data includes important spots where seabirds nests.

This dataset has been produced by COWI (http://www.cowi.dk). Based on data collected from Baltic sea countries (Denmark, Estonia, Finland (Finnish data Copyright: SYKE, The Finnish data is lacking small bays of the Finnish coastline. These bays are important for birds), Germany, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Sweden). The dataset includes data provided by the BRISK Project Partner organisations from various Baltic Sea countries.

  • The data set is showing spots where Coastal lagoons occurs in the Baltic Sea area as points. The dataset is showing spots where Coastal lagoons occurs in the Baltic Sea area as points used for the BRISK project (Sub-regional risk of spill of oil and hazardous substances in the Baltic Sea, http://www.brisk.helcom.fi/).

The detailed documentation of what partner provided what data is given in the Annex of the document: 70618-3.1.2.2 Data Collection Report. Coastal lagoons have a high biodiversity, they are spawning and nursery areas for fish (such as perch, roach, sander, pike) and staging areas for birds during migration and moulting. Stranded oil may degrade slowly and the risk for damage to the habitat is high during clean up actions. The organisms encountered in the habitat are generally very vulnerable to oil.

  • The data set is showing moulting areas for sea birds (primary sea ducks) in the Baltic Sea area as polygons used for the BRISK project (Sub-regional risk of spill of oil and hazardous substances in the Baltic Sea, http://www.brisk.helcom.fi/). This dataset has been produced by COWI (http://www.cowi.dk) based on data collected from Denmark, Finland (Copyright: SYKE), Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia and Sweden. The dataset includes data provided by the BRISK Project Partner organisations from various Baltic Sea countries. The detailed documentation of what partner provided what data is given in the Annex of the document: 70618-3.1.2.2 Data Collection Report. During the summer period when the birds change feathers (moulting time) the birds are particularly vulnerable.
