Description 
Summary

In the years 1984-1985, during the cruises, 850 km of seismoacoustic profiling were carried out in a regular grid 0.5 x 0.5 km, 800 cores were taken and, in 305 sites, direct observations of sea floor and description of sedimentary structures by scuba divers were carried out. Samples from the cores were investigated in the laboratory. Amongst others, 1164 analyses of grain size distribution and 494 analyses of petrographic composition of gravely fraction were completed. As a result of the explorations the deposit 'Koszalin Bay' was recognized, which comprises 17 fields of 0.3 to 3.65 km**2 area each. The thickness of the deposit is 0.3 to 1.8m, with an average of 0.9m. The average content of the grains below 2.0mm is 60.1%. The geological balanced resources are evaluated at 37.7 million tons.
