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.
