Human Impacts on the Mediterranean Marine Ecosystem

The goal of this project was to map the current threats and impacts of human activities on the marine ecosystem of the Mediterranean. For more information, please visit the main project site Global Map of Human Impacts to Marine Ecosystems or see the publication:

The georeferenced rasters (geotiff) here are in Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area projection centered on the Mediterranean ocean (proj4=+proj=laea +lat_0=38 +lon_0=18 +x_0=0 +y_0=0 +datum=WGS84 +units=m +no_defs +ellps=WGS84 +towgs84=0,0,0).

You can download: all rasters in data.zip (41 MB) or reference layers.csv (8 KB).
