Short summary
We provide new maps of the sedimentary environment in the north-west European Continental Shelf. Maps are blended products of interpolated field estimates and statistical predictions. Data products include mud, sand and gravel percentages, median grain sizes, rock cover, carbon and nitrogen content, porosity and permeability, wave and tidal velocities, and natural disturbance rates. These maps can be used in applications such as species distribution modelling and ecosystem modelling.
