    Sea-bed substrate map, sediment accumulation rate map and case studies of the EMODnet-Geology study area. The sea-bed substrate map of the Baltic Sea, the Greater North Sea and the Celtic Seas is presented at 1: 1 000 000 scale. The sea-bed substrate map is collated from more than 200 separate sea-bed substrate maps. The sediment accumulation rate map of the Baltic Sea and parts of the Greater North Sea shows point-source data from more than 600 sea-bed sediment sampling sites. Six case studies emphasize the importance of marine geological information, local features and detailed surveys in marine spatial planning and use of marine resources. The maps and case studies are collated and compiled within the EMODNET-Geology project.

    The WMS MSSP-EEZ (INSPIRE) represents marine seismic survey profiles for the German EEZ. During the period from 1996 to 2007 five cruises operated by BGR acquired seismic lines from the German EEZ. The aim of these cruises was a detailed survey of the geological structure of the seabed from the North Sea and Baltic Sea. According to the Data Specification on Geology (D2.8.II.4_v3.0, subtopic Geophysics) the content of the information with respect to the seismic profiles is INSPIRE-compliant. The WMS MSSP-EEZ (INSPIRE) contains for each cruise one layer, e.g. GE.seismicLine.pq2. The expeditions are displayed correspondingly to the INSPIRE portrayal rules. Via the getFeatureInfo request the user obtains the content of the INSPIRE attributes platformType und profileType. Additionally, the WMS contains a campaign layer (GE.2DSeismicSurvey) with the INSPIRE attributes campaignType and surveyType.
