Marine Geophysical Surveys Set to Begin

First Marine Geophysical Surveys Set to Begin off Copeland Coast.

The first marine geophysical survey have just begun off the coast of Copeland, Cumbria. The non-intrusive survey will gather data to provide a better understanding of the rock structure and help the search to find a suitable site for a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF).

A 92-metre vessel carrying specialist acoustic equipment will be deployed 5km-20km from the coastline. The survey, by specialists Shearwater GeoServices, will take place over a period of three to four weeks.
