This dataset contains wave data collected by surface moorings across three sites (D1, D2 and D3) west of the Isle of Islay between February 2012 and August 2012. There was a Datawell Mk.III directional Waverider buoy moored at each of the three sites collecting the wave data every 30 minutes. The data were collected as part of the metocean survey of the proposed Islay Offshore Windfarm. Partrac Ltd were contracted to conduct the data collection by SSE Renewables and provided the data to The Crown Estate as the landowner of the UK seabed out to 12 nautical miles. The data and associated metadata reports are held at the British Oceanographic Data Centre, as a MEDIN Data Archiving Centre.
This dataset contains wave spectra, wave statistics and current data collected by surface and subsurface moorings across three sites in the Bristol Channel between March 2010 and April 2011. A Datawell Mk.III directional Waverider buoy was moored at one site collecting wave spectra and statistics data while Nortek Acoustic Wave and Current meters (AWAC) were moored at the seabed in trawl resistant frames at two sites. The AWACs collected wave data from the surface and current data through the water column split into 2 m bins. TRIAXYS directional wave sensors with onboard Nortek Aquadopp current profilers were also deployed at the two sites. Like the AWAC moorings, the TRIAXYS moorings collected wave data from the surface and current data through the water column split into 1 m bins. The data were collected as part of the environmental impact assessment of the proposed Atlantic Array offshore wind farm. GEMS Survey Ltd were contracted to conduct the data collection and provided the data to The Crown Estate as the landowner of the UK seabed out to 12 nautical miles. The data and associated metadata reports are held at the British Oceanographic Data Centre, as a MEDIN Data Archiving Centre.
Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS) Working Paper 2015-03: Assessing interactions between multiple geological CO2 storage sites: generic learning from the CO2MultiStore project
Technical report from CO2MultiStore project, component of ‘Optimising CO2 storage in geological formations: a case study offshore Scotland, September 2015. The report captures knowledge gained from the process, progress and findings of the research that is applicable to the development of any multi-user storage resource.
