Status: Submitted

Definition: Seabed sediments (genesis) describes the geological processes behind deposition of the sediments in the uppermost 1-2 m of the seabed. The map is equivalent to Quaternary maps on land. The dataset series comprise three datasets: Seabed sediments (genesis), overview, Seabed sediments (genesis), regional and Seabed sediments (genesis), detailed. The three individual datasets are digitized in different scales and have different data coverage.
