Marine aggregates comprise near-shore deposits of non-metallic detrital minerals and calcium carbonate. They occur both on beaches and on deeper seabed areas and are principally mined for use in the construction industry. Concentrated into their present occurrences by hydrodynamic processes, aggregates may have originally been deposited by mechanisms such as river or glacial deposition.

The GSI, as partner and Work Package 7 (Minerals) leader of EMODnet Geology Phase II, are compiling information on the distribution of known marine aggregate deposits in European waters. EMODnet partners are submitting the spatial extent of mapped aggregate deposits and established information; here you can view data collated and harmonised thus far.

Compilation of semantically transformed data (according to INSPIRE) on the sea-floor geology (bedrock) of the European Seas. This includes the lithology and stratigraphy of the geological units. The project partners are national geological survey organisations in their respective countries.Data completeness depends on the availability of data and respective mapping campaigns.Data resolution includes scales of 1:100.000 to 1:4.000.000.

The GSI, as partner and Work Package 7 (Minerals) leader of EMODnet Geology Phase II, are compiling information on cobalt rich ferromanganese crusts. EMODnet partners are submitting the mapped extent of cobalt rich ferromanganese crusts and established information; here you can view data collated thus far. Cobalt rich ferromanganese crusts are metallic mineral deposits that often form at depths between 400 to 4000 metres, as thin layers on the flanks of seamounts and submarine volcanoes. The crusts accumulate when manganese, iron and trace metals including cobalt, copper, nickel and platinum dissolved in sea water are precipitated onto the volcanic substrate.
