Sea Surface Area - Spatial object type

Definition: An area of the sea surface with some type of cover e.g. an area of sea ice.

Description: This describes a sea region according to the characteristics of the sea surface rather than characteristics of the water column in general. It is analogous to the concept of LandCover (INSPIRE Annex III).

Subtype of: Marine Layer


Attributes

Definition: Surface type of sea area.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: SeaSurfaceClassificationValue

Definition: Geometry of the marine layer.

Multiplicity: 0...1

Valuetype: GM_Object

Definition: Time period for which the marine layer is valid.

Valuetype: TM_Period


Associated objects - Optional

Definition: A Marine Layer describes any layer that may cover any part of a sea surface or sea bottom.

Description: Examples of surface layers identified in the reference material include oil, algal blooms and ice. Examples of seabed layer identified in the reference material include sediment type and presence or absence of vegetation.As these phenomena have a dynamic characteristic, the extent they describe (GM_Surface) has a validity period. A marineLayer may not be associated with a particular SeaArea. A SeaArea may have multiple MarineLayers and MarineLayers can overlap each other.

Multiplicity: 0..*

Name of the association: sub Layer

Association definition: A marine layer may have a sub-layer, for example an Oil Slick may have a main slick with several smaller sub-slicks.
