EMODnet Human Activities_WasteDisposal_DumpedMunitions

The dataset on dumped munitions was created by CETMAR as a result of the aggregation of data provided by several sources or reports of OSPAR commission, MED POL, Spain Ministry of Defense and Maritime Administration of Latvia. Shapes with munition dumping sites define polygons and points features in Baltic sea, North Sea, Celtic Seas, Iberian Coast and Bay of Biscay and Mediterranean Sea. Information was picked form different official sources depending on the country. Each point or polygon has the following attributes (where available): type of munition (Conventional and/or Chemical) and distance to coast (meters). The distance to coast (EEA coastline shapefile) has been calculated using the UTM WGS84 Zone projected coordinate system where data fall in. The dataset will be updated according the availability of data and is available for viewing and download on EMODnet - Human Activities web portal (www.emodnet-humanactivities.eu).
