Seabed Mapping project, Selsey to Eastoke

Minor funds contribution (2013-2015) \ Channel Coast Observatory: up to £4,000

The Channel Coastal Observatory was awarded £4,000 to map a 40km² block of the 2013 East Solent swath bathymetry.

The 40km² block has been mapped and shows a variety of sediment textures, from bedrock, thin veneer of sediment, significant sediment deposits and mobile bedforms. The outputs will feed directly into the 2012 update of the Sediment Transport Study.
