Abstrakt

A SES 2000 sediment echo sounding survey was carried out in August 2016.

The survey continued the 2015 mapping with additional shallow bathymetry in the Mourisaq area, as well as mapped soft sediment thickness in nearshore shallow basins.

The mapped basins show soft sediments in thickness of 0 to 2.5m.

The high resolution SES2000 profiles give detailed information of the uppermost few meters of the seabed. Future studies should aim to correlate this new geophysical data with existing vibrocore data.

At water depths of more than 10m, the detailed SES2000 profiles reveals substantial reworking of the seabed sediments caused by iceberg ploughing.
