Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) Multibeam Survey 2012/10_JNCC: Stanton Banks (17/Aug/2012 to 01/Sep/2012)
This marine multibeam and sampling survey was undertaken on Stanton Banks by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC), Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science (CEFAS) and British Geological Survey (BGS) in July/August 2012 on board the Northern Lighthouse Board vessel NLV Polestar. The survey was led by the JNCC and included a team from CEFAS who were involved in benthic sampling. A combination of surveys methods were employed, including seabed imagery (drop camera), day grabs and rock dredges. BGS collected sea floor multibeam bathymetry data using a Kongsberg EM3002D multibeam system. The multibeam data are archived by BGS. Technical details of the multibeam survey are contained in the BGS Report of Survey CR/12/100.
An oil and gas industry site survey for a platform/pipeline route acquired under licence P335 between May and June 2011. The block number traversed was 9/11. This was a shallow drilling survey without any seismic sources. It drilled 8 shallow boreholes to maximum depth of 102m below the seafloor for a planned jacket location. All borings were within a 209m radius of the planned wellbay centre. No borings were drilled for anchor locations. 11 samples of the seabed surface were taken along a planned pipeline route.
