The Geological Survey conducted on the south coast of the island of Porto Santo, aimed at the characterization of underwater morphology and sedimentary cover between the coastline and 100 meters deep. This project is the result of an agreement made between the Hydrographic Institute and the Regional Government of Madeira.
Surveys of 20 bathymetric profiles along the Porto Santo bay were made, distanced 500 meters from depth of -10 meters to the shoreline, and its orientation as perpendicular as possible to the bathymetry.
The project focused on Porto Santo Beach and contemplated topographic surveys carried out using the Trimble 5700 GPS RTK (with planimetric accuracy of 1 cm and altimetry precision of 2 cm) and hydrographic surveys carried out using the Trimble 5700 GPS RTK, Raytheon DE719D echosounder and Knudsen 320 M/P echosounder with centimeter accuracy. The fieldwork processed in three distinct phases: July 2006, January 2007 and July 2007.
Geophysical surveys and sedimentological study of surface samples of the sedimentary cover to delimitation, quantification and characterization of sedimentary deposits on the south coast of Madeira Island. This project is the result of a protocol made between the Hydrographic Institute and the Regional Government of Madeira.

This dataset was prepared for 3rd national report under Article 17 section 1 of the Habitats Directive (2007-2012), corresponding to the to the distribution, through a grid 10 x 10 km, of the natural habitats of comunity interest listed in Annex I of the Habitats Directive, particularly the marine and coastal habitats.
Web feature service with the data of breeding birds in Portugal. These data provide information about distribution at certain moment in breeding species in mainland Portugal. In the cases where it is possible also characterize the abundance of national populations of these species. In the present service, the data relates only marine and coastal birds.
