  • Geological features of seabed habitats extracted from an extant layer of the official cartography of the MPA

  • Gardline Geosurvey Limited was contracted by Forewind Limited to survey the Dogger Bank Wind Farm Area between 04-Apr-2013 and 02-Aug-2013; work was undertaken on the inter project cable route corridors, the Tranche C zonal survey and the Met Mast West. The aim of the surveys was to carry out a geophysical investigation that would broadly assess the entire developable area of the zone and route. Seabed information was required in order to inform the site selection process and enable preliminary foundation design to be undertaken. The geological data acquisition programme was carried out on M.V. Sea Surveyor, which sailed from Hull and returned to Blyth upon completion of survey operations and M.V. Vigilant which sailed from Great Yarmouth and to where they returned upon completion of survey operations. This dataset is MBES (MultiBeamEchoSounder) data obtained using a Simrad EM710. Processed using Caris HIPS and SIPS 7.1 to produce a digital terrain model (dtm) of the bathymetric surface. Available in the following format: 1) xyz - space delimited text file of gridded bathymetry. Data stored as: Column One: Easting Column Two: Northing Column Three: Water Depth 2) Ungridded Soundings - space delimited text file of the 'point cloud' of MBES soundings. Data stored as: Column One: Easting Column Two: Northing Column Three: Water Depth 3) Arc ASCII grid - raster text file of gridded bathymetry.

  • A geotechnical survey campaign was undertaken within the vicinity of the Westermost Rough Offshore Wind Farm. This was supported by a preliminary review of acoustic data and assessment for the presence of Annex I reefs to minimise the risk of potential damage to protected features. Following the review of existing data, a drop down video survey protocol was developed (EMU, 2011) and approved by the Marine Management Organisation (MMO). Part of this protocol identified that a number of proposed geotechnical sampling sites were likely to be in the vicinity of potential Annex I reefs and therefore warranted field ground-truthing by means of drop down video to verify the presence and status of these features. The video ground-truthing survey has now been completed. Drawing upon the findings of this survey, the 2012 EMU report present within this series provides an update of the assessment of the potential Annex I reefs present at the proposed geotechnical sample locations and fulfils condition 3.1.1 of the Marine Licence (Licence L/2011/001075). The aim of the 2013 Fugro EMU document also present within this series was to satisfy Marine Licence condition 31.22 and to address the responses from the MMO regarding the Annex I reef features (letter ref: REN024, dated 12th April 2013, and 21st June 2013). The objectives were to assess the impacts (direct and indirect) of the construction activities on the potential Annex I features. The objectives of this report were to: 1. Assess the direct impact (loss of habitat) of each of the construction activities; 2. Assess the associated indirect impacts (increase in sediment smothering, and suspended sediment concentrations. 3. Assess the cumulative impacts of all construction activities.

  • Envision have undertaken a biological interpretation of the geophysical data from Tranche A and Creyke Beck Export Cable Route. The strategy for this interpretation was to integrate sample records and the geophysical remotely sensed images to produce distribution maps. This follows the strategy that has been established within the EU through the MESH program. The primary purpose of analysis was to derive a limited range of habitat classes suitable for ground truthing the acoustic data, which were adopted as the mapping units. The requirements for successful ground truthing are not exactly the same as describing diversity. There has been more emphasis on commonality and potential for overlap between the mapping units. The analyses identified a small number of robust classes from the infauna defined by their predominant species and those that contributed most to the classes distinctiveness. Information on epifauna and gravel/cobble were incorporated to derive a single ground truth dataset Suitable ground truth data assigned to habitat classes is vital for integrated analysis and this necessitated Envision undertaking the analysis of the sample records to derive a locally relevant list of habitat classes. The analyses identified a small number of robust classes from the infauna defined by their predominant species and those that contributed most to the classes distinctiveness. Information on epifauna and gravel/cobble were incorporated to derive a single ground truth dataset The faunal composition of these groups were then matched to the Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland (v04.05) and a suite of possible biotopes assigned to the ground truth data. The geophysical data required processing and transformation to render the images suitable for integrated analysis. The analyses have been reported and the full list of habitat classes described. The interpretation of the geophysical data through integrated analysis with the ground truth data has been reported and the habitat class distribution map has been presented. Surficial sediments were identified from the still images and classified. These data have been used to ground truth the geophysical images and a map has been generated. The distribution of the habitats is discussed. The biota is typical of moderately exposed (moderately disturbed) gravelly sandy sediments in the North Sea. Although all the habitats can be considered components of Annex 1 Subtidal Sandbanks, there are no biotopes of particular sensitivity and, although Sabellaria spinulosa was found, the densities of individuals in samples was never very high and it is unlikely that any sample sites could be classified as biogenic reef.

  • Gravity data were obtained during the INCRISIS cruise to address the recent and active near-surface tectonic deformations related to the 2016–2017 seismic sequence within the greater context of the 1993–1994 and 2004 sequences in the central Alboran Sea. This study provided insights into the propagation of recent fault zones and how they are linked to seafloor deformations in addition to their relationships with the former Al Idrisi Fault.

  • Mapping of the active faults in the Alboran Sea based on multibeam bathymery and seismic records. They belong to the NNE-SSW broad band of deformation and seismicity that affects the central part.

  • Multibeam bathymetry in order to define the main geohazard feaures in the Galicia Bank region.
