    The database on dumped munitions in the EU was created in 2018 by CETMAR for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by several sources. It is updated every year and is available for viewing and download on EMODnet Human Activities web portal (www.emodnet-humanactivities.eu). The database contains points and/or (where available) polygons representing dumped munitions sites in the European sea basins. Each point or polygon has the following attributes (where available): Munition type (Conventional and/or Chemical), Munition description, Information provider, Update date and distance to coast (metres). The distance to coast (EEA coastline shapefile) has been calculated using the UTM WGS84 Zone projected coordinate system where data fall in.
