Description

On the instructions of DONG Walney (UK) Ltd, Osiris Projects were commisioned to carry out a geophysical survey along the corridor of a proposed cable route for the Walney Offshore Wind Farm development. Data aquisition was carried out during the period 20th to the 29th of November 2005. Data acquisition for the surveys was undertaken using MV \'Barinthus\'; a purpose built 13.0m-survey vessel. The primary objective of the surveys was to map bathymetry, sub-bottom data and seabed features, including any magnetic anomalies and sonar contacts. According to the relevant British Geological Survey (B.G.S) sheet, the geology of the area comprises seabed sands, clays and glacial tills, which are underlain by the undivided rocks of Permo-Triassic age. Over much of the easterly section of the cable route corridor the seabed sediments appear to be mainly sands, gravels, cobbles and boulders of glacial origin, with a veneer of finer grained sediments in places. Further Offshore, the glacial deposits become covered by a westward thickening succession of finer gained sediments.
