Seabed Mobility

In many coastal and offshore locations the influence of waves and tides can lead to high rates of sediment mobility which can change the profile of the seabed as well as beaches. These changes may present a risk of damage to assets that are placed on or are buried within the sediment or are located at the coast.

ABPmer offers specialist examination of seabed mobility which combines technical reviews of historic charts, contemporary surveys and metocean processes with our geomorphological knowledge of seabed behaviour. This approach helps our clients develop an improved understanding of the how the seabed profile has changed over time and how it may vary into the future.

Our sediment mobility assessments are used to inform a variety of projects including shoreline management and coastal defences, offshore windfarms, marine aggregate consents, cable routing investigations and cable landfall studies.
