Objectives: The objectives of this STSM are to create thematic maps on the occurrence, characteristics and extent of OFG identified in the waters of European countries, and to identify areas of interest, with potentially significant volumes of OFG, where additional studies are required. It will deliver a GIS project with several layers summarising the data collected during Year 1 of the COST Action, and integrated with the existing literature, as well as a set of thematic maps of known and predicted OFG distribution in the waters of the European countries. These thematic maps will be an indispensable tool to better visualise the obtained results and to identify the area where there is a lack of data and plan future exploration activities.
