The AggreWind survey begins tomorrow on board the RV Celtic Voyager. This research cruise is combining two projects from the Marine Geology Research Group; 1) Aggregate Potential of Irish South Coast Offshore Palaeovalleys (AggrePOP) and 2) the Eirwind project.
The research cruise aims to acquire cores to test submerged valley models and to de-risk offshore aggregate potential as well as collecting MBES to re-risk offshore wind potential.
Our team is being lead by Post-Doctoral researcher Dr Jared Peters of the Eirwind project, and will consist of five other scientists.
We will be posting regular blogs/updates via twitter and our website, so keep a close watch!
