Collect sedimentological, sub-seabed seismic data and in-situ cone penetrometer geotechnical (CPT) data from the northern Irish Sea to analyse the marine environmental conditions and thus to optimise the foundation design for offshore renewable energy infrastructure.
Data collected during this survey will also feed into academic research attempting to understand the development of offshore sedimentary sequences around Ireland where considerable seismics, multibeam and shallow cores have already been taken. Such sequences provide a palaeo-environmental and potential palaeo-climatic record.
