Description

Liverpool and Bangor Universities predicted the level of sediment migration for the Centrica round 3 Irish Sea - Zone 9 Offshore wind farm development. Geophysical and geological data was collected by Van Landeghem et al. during the AmSedIS project (research cruise CV12007), documenting sediment waves of all shapes and sizes and in different areas of the Irish Sea, and uniquely collected data on granulometric variation of sediment in a linear trough-to-trough transects perpendicular to sediment wave crests. The CV12007 data overlaps several existing datasets, including the Centrica data collected in the Round 3 Irish Sea (R3IS) Zone. From 22 sediment waves in various places of the Irish Sea, sediment grabs in transect were analysed for granulometric variations, while the sediment wave was measured for its height and migration rate. From this data, Liverpool and Bangor Universities produced GIS outputs for the prediction of sediment migration.
