parameters. The maps include percentage compositions of mud, sand and gravel; porosity and permeability; median grain size of the whole-sediment and of the sand and the gravel fractions; carbon and nitrogen content of sediments; percentage of seabed area covered by rock; mean and maximum depth-averaged tidal velocity and wave-orbital velocity at the seabed; and mean monthly natural disturbance rates. A number of applications for these maps exist, including species distribution modelling and the more accurate representation of seafloor biogeochemistry in ecosystem models.
