TRACER TESTS IN THE MIDDLE NORTH SEA

E. Bratteland, P. Bruun

Abstract


Tracing of sediment transport has so far mostly been concentrated in rivers and particularly in estuaries and in shallow coastal waters with main interest on navigational, erosional and some pollutionary aspects. With the ever increasing oil activites in the North Sea, knowledge on bottom sediment movements at large water depths is becoming more and more important. Little tracing has been undertaken on the offshore sea bottom at depths exceeding 20 - 30 meters.
