  • Potential cumulative impacts on benthic habitats is based on the same method than <a href="" target="_blank">Baltic Sea Impact Index</a>, but is focused on physical pressures and benthic habitats. The dataset was created based on separate analysis for potential cumulative impacts on only the benthic habitats, as these are particularly affected by physical pressures. In this case the evaluation was based on pressure layers representing <a href="" target="_blank">physical loss</a> and <a href="" target="_blank">physical disturbance</a>, combined with information on the distribution of eight broad benthic habitat types and five habitat-forming species (<a href="" target="_blank">Furcellaria lumbricalis</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Mytilus edulis</a>, <a href="" target="_blank"> Fucus sp.</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Charophytes</a> and <a href="" target="_blank">Zostera marina</a>). The potential cumulative impacts has been estimated based on currently best available data, but spatial and temporal gaps may occur in underlying datasets. Please scroll down to "Lineage" and visit <a href="" target="_blank">State of the Baltic Sea website</a> for more info.
