QICS Data: Seismic data from Survey 2014/8 in Ardmucknish Bay (29/Sep/2014 to 03/Oct/2014)

Dataset description

This dataset contains data from a marine geophysical survey which took place on 1st October 2014 in the area of Ardmucknish Bay on board the RV White Ribbon. The survey was carried out by the British Geological Survey (BGS). This was a follow up survey to the previous work carried out in this area (Surveys: 2011/4 and 2012/5, 2012/7) to monitor changes in the geometry of gas charged sediments. QICS (Quantifying and monitoring potential ecosystem impacts of geological carbon storage) was a scientific research project funded by NERC; its purpose was to improve the understanding of the sensitivities of the UK marine environment to a potential leak from a carbon capture storage (CCS) system. Sub bottom seismic profiling data were collected using an Applied Acoustics surface tow boomer (STB). Webpage www.bgs.ac.uk/QICS/.

Lineage statement Seismic lines using a surface tow boomer were ran over the drill site to visualise the bedrock formation and sediment layers. A total of 27 lines were completed over the drill site. See the Cruise Report for further information.
