Seabed sediments (genesis), overview

This data set contains the distribution of seabed sediments classified after genesis in mapped areas on the Norwegian shelf. The superficial deposit surface type describes the superficial deposits genesis. The data is based on the contents of the Quaternary map which are analogous (scale 1: 250,000 to 1: 500,000), or based on digital data from modern surveying. Mapping of sediments in the sea is based on different measurement methods, but seismic reflection and sampling the seabed is common marine geological mapping methods that are also used in the mapping of these areas.
