The European Atlas of the Seas can be used for students to explore and learn about the seas and maritime areas of the European Union in an interactive way. You can zoom in on a special area, sea basin or country, export the result to a link (to use it later) or even print it.  If you are working with a website, you can embed a map easily (the code can be generated from the share option).

Erosion +

Europe's coasts are suffering from increasing coastal erosion. Coastal zones are retreating, in 2004 about twenty thousand kilometres of coasts faced serious impacts.  Land and sea interact with each other along the coast line.  As long as there is enough space and buffer zones, these processes do not cause grave problems.
