Definition: Anchoring and mooring conditions in some coastal areas with detailed data coverage, as interpreted from bottom type (hard or soft bottom) and depth. It is distinguished between anchoring and mooring conditions. In this context mooring means the possibility for divers to mount bolts into exposed bedrock (to fasten marine installations), usually at depths less than 30m. Anchoring conditions mean the anticipated relative hold of anchors in the substrate.
