This is a short description and file share of our retrospective integreated biodidversity assessment produced in two of the Baltic Sea basins: Gulf of Finland and Bothnian Sea. The assessment was conducted using Integreated Biodivesity Assessment Tool BEAT 3.0 developed in BalticBOOST project. The tool is available online at: zenodo.org/record/1288315#.XR3byWcXYg5. More detailed information about the tool and metadata is offered by Nygård et al. 2018.
Here I offer only the files that were modified for our analysis. All the input files and the code to run the tool can be found from the website mentioned above.
Modified input files:
Additionally, we modified the indicators.txt file to contain our indicator dataset. The file is not provided here but there is a file in the BEAT website that can be used for running the code.
About running the tool
We did only small modification to the tool itself (file BOOSTbiodiv.R, offered in the BEAT tool website):
OutputECDetailLevel<-5 (row 53)
OutputSAUDetailLevel<-6 (row 54)
Also, as we produced retrospective assessment which means that we used 5 year running average of the indicators and assessed every 5 year set separately, also the code needed to be run for each indicator set of 5 years separately. After this, we merged all the needed results files. The merged results table is available here: zenodo.org/record/3266843#.XR3272cXYg4.
