QICS Data: Seismic and Multibeam data from Survey 2011/4 in Ardmucknish Bay (14/Jun/2011 to 17/Jun/2011)

Dataset description

This dataset contains data from a marine multibeam and geophysical survey which took place in June 2011 in the Ardmucknish Bay area on board the BGS survey vessel RV White Ribbon. The survey was carried out by the British Geological Survey (BGS) in collaboration with Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) and National Oceanography Centre (SAMS). QICS (Quantifying and monitoring potential ecosystem impacts of geological carbon storage) was a scientific research project funded by NERC. The purpose was to collect the data necessary to identify a potential directional drilling route from shore to a submerged gas release point. Sea floor bathymetry data were collected using an EM3002D. Sub bottom seismic profiling data were collected using a surface tow boomer. Technical details of the survey are contained in the BGS Report of Survey. Webpage www.bgs.ac.uk/QICS/. NERC Grant. NE/H013962/1.

Lineage statement 18 seismic lines were completed over the drill site using a surface tow boomer to visualise the bedrock formation and sediment layers. Multibeam lines were also run over the site to verify a previous diver survey carried out in the area assessing any potential seabed obstructions using a Kongsberg EM3002D Multibeam Echo sounder. There were issues with multibeam calibration throughout the survey, 11 lines were completed to show the seabed, however they are to be treated with caution as depths are not necessarily representative.
