Description

This project relates to the monitoring survey work conducted at the site of the Rhyl Flats Offshore Wind Farm. The monitoring program comprises a variety of topics such as sea bed morphology and scour, current modelling, benthic organisms, electromagnetic fields, marine fish, underwater noise and vibration and ornithology.  Some of the outcomes of the monitoring shows localised erosion or deposition of the seabed, benthic communities of the area remain largely unchanged with similar faunal and sediment characteristics as those recorded from the previous years monitoring study, epi-benthos data collected has unchanged over a period of two years - this provides a good baseline to compare future surveys.
