"Luymes" in 1963 in the area between 53°50'N-54°50'N and 2°E-4°20'E brought to light that the Dogger Bank (average depth 25 m) is built up of medium-grained sand and coarse … (Ongar: PSS Group.). Dogger Bank (Dutch: Doggersbank, German: Doggerbank, Danish: Doggerbanke) is a large sandbank in a shallow area of the North Sea about 100 kilometres (62 mi) off the east coast of England. The Dogger Formation occurs as variable lithofacies across the Cleveland Basin from the Yorkshire Coast, near Whitby [NZ 480 500] to the Hambleton Hills [SE 496 827] and Howardian Hills [SE 600 600]. The Dogger Bank is an extensive sublittoral sandbank in the southern North Sea formed by glacial processes and submergence through sea-level rise. Post-Triassic of the Southern North Sea. The projects Dogger Bank Wind Farm is an offshore wind farm being developed in three phases – Dogger Bank A, Dogger Bank B and Dogger Bank C – located between 130km and 190km from the North East coast of England at their nearest points. In: Knox, R W O'B and Cordey, W G (eds.) The Dogger Bank Creyke Beck project includes the joint development of two 1.2GW offshore wind farms in the North Sea. Yes (1) Source. British Geological Survey, Nottingham. Battle of Dogger Bank, naval engagement between British and German battle cruisers during World War I. Dogger Bank Creyke Beck A and B would be built 77 miles (125km) off the Yorkshire coast. 43-53 in Powell, A J and Riding, J B (eds), Recent Developments in Applied Biostratigraphy. The Dogger Bank Wind Farm will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world, once all three phases are complete in 2026. It has long been known by fishermen to be a productive fishing bank; it was named after the doggers, medieval Dutch fishing boats especially used for catching cod. 357-361). The Dogger Formation occurs as variable lithofacies across the Cleveland Basin from the Yorkshire Coast, near Whitby [NZ 480 500] to the Hambleton Hills [SE 496 827] and Howardian Hills [SE 600 600]. Fixed-foundation wind turbines are economically limited to maximum water depths of 40 to 50 m (130 to 160 ft; 22 to 27 fathoms);[8] at greater water depths new floating wind turbine designs are required, which currently cost significantly more to build. Concerns had been raised when a supertrawler had been seen off the Yorkshire coast. Variable, both locally and regionally; generally about 0.75 to 2m thick on the Yorkshire Coast and in ferruginous sandstone/ironstone lithofacies; limestone and mudstone lithofacies, up to 12.2m locally preserved.

Sedimentation of the Aalenian rocks of Yorkshire. A sediment survey carried out on board H.M.S. Lithostratigraphic nomenclature of the UK North Sea. The result was a British victory, and the German navy delayed further significant action against the British fleet for more than a year. The bank is an important fishing area, with cod and herring being caught in large numbers. The 1931 Dogger Bank earthquake took place below the bank, measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale and was the largest earthquake ever recorded in the United Kingdom. Memoir of the Geological Survey of the United Kingdom. Lithostratigraphy and depositional history of the late Toarcian sequence at Ravenscar, Yorkshire. This is the largest single continuous expanse of shallow sandbank in the UK and was formed by glacial processes, before being submerged through sea level rise. .... [it] is the equivalent to allowing bulldozers to plough through a protected forest. 2005. Clasts in the Dogger Formation include mudstone pebbles, and fragments of ammonites and bivalves derived from the underlying Alum Shale Member. Explanation Hoofdnavigatie. (-208). As such, it has been proposed by various groups to designate the area a Marine Nature Reserve. Dogger Bank Teesside A and B would feature 400 turbines, with power cables coming onshore near Redcar to connect with the National Grid at Lackonby. Research Article A great wave: the Storegga tsunami and the end of Doggerland? The Yorkshire Coast. The uplands, comprising the current Dogger Bank, would probably have been cut off , forming Dogger Island, which survived for approximately another millennium. and Riding, J B. "[4], Geologically, the feature is most likely a moraine, formed during the Pleistocene. Geological Magazine, Vol.80, 209-230. The wind farms, named Dogger Bank Creyke Beck A and B, will be connected to the existing onshore Creyke Beck substation near Cottingham, East Yorkshire, UK. Sample location 145 is situated south of the Dogger Bank, sample location 228 is situated on the Dogger Bank. Across most of the Cleveland Basin, the lower boundary is generally sharp, disconformable or unconformable on the gently folded Lower Jurassic Lias Group, marked by an abrupt change where grey fissile mudstone of the Lower Jurassic Whitby Mudstone Formation is overlain by sandstone, ironstone or limestone of the Dogger Formation. A Greenpeace spokesperson said "how can you continue to allow bottom trawlers to plough the seabed in a protected area? 161-233 in Rayner, D H and Hemingway, J E (eds), The geology and mineral resources of Yorkshire.

Green electricity tariffs may not actually be that green, says Which? A crag at Yew Grain [NZ 717 018] near Great Fryup, Upper Eskdale, reported in Rastall and Hemingway (1943, p.219) is typical of the ironstone and sandstone lithofacies. [1], The bank extends over about 17,600 square kilometres (6,800 sq mi), and is about 260 by 100 kilometres (160 by 60 mi) in extent. Rastall, R H and Hemingway, J E. 1949. Whyte, M A and Romano, M. 2006. Marked by an abrupt upward transition from ferruginous sandstone, ironstone or limestone at the top of the Dogger Formation to cross-stratified, non-bioturbated sandstone, siltstone and mudstone (commonly with plant fragments) of the overlying Saltwick Formation (Ravenscar Group). Offshore, the Dogger Formation is equivalent, in part, to the Wroot Formation (Lott and Knox,1994) in the southern North Sea and in part to the Drake Formation in the Brent Province (Butler et al., 2005). Geological Magazine, Vol.76, 225-233 (273-281). Jurassic of the Central and Northern North Sea. Grey fine-grained sandstone and, locally, siderite mudstone of the Whitby Mudstone Formation is overlain sharply by a thin phosphatic pebble bed that marks the base of the Dogger Formation, and which passes up to blue-grey, bioturbated sandstone (1.07m), black mudstone (0.61m) and green siltstone (0.15m) ("Danby Facies") that are, in turn, overlain by green-grey, fine-grained sandstone (0.91m) and black to grey chamosite ooidal ironstone (3.96m), with a siderite matrix ("Ajalon facies"). Upper Eskdale. Mineralogy. The Basal Dogger Bank comprises a series of discrete bank-like deposits (Fig. Any in SPE Disciplines (3) Geologic Time. The researchers’ paper explains “The broader landscape became increasingly fragmented by the formation of estuaries, inlets, and islands.

Dogger Bank (Dutch: Doggersbank, German: Doggerbank, Danish: Doggerbanke) is a large sandbank in a shallow area of the North Sea about 100 kilometres (62 mi) off the east coast of England. The Dogger Bank is an extensive sublittoral sandbank in the southern North Sea formed by glacial processes and submergence through sea-level rise. Dogger Bank Special Area of Conservation shown in red. The oldest of these formations is the Dogger Bank Formation that comprises massive clays, sands and diamicts of glacial origin (Cotterill et al., 2017a), subdivided informally in this study into the Lower and Upper Dogger Bank sub-units. Lower Eskdale. Hemingway, J E. 1974. Where both formations are dominated by mudstone, the boundary may be somewhat cryptic – that of the Dogger Formation is dark grey, less silty and of a distinctly marine aspect, that of the Saltwick Formation is paler grey, silty and with black plant debris. Highlight matches. The Dogger Bank is the largest single continuous expanse of shallow sandbank in UK waters. Originally projected to develop up to 9 gigawatts of power as part of a planned nine zone project of 32 gigawatts, the plan was later scaled down to a 7.2-gigawatt installation in agreement with the area's owner Crown Estates. A history of Whitby and Streoneshalh Abbey. The Dogger Bank was selected for offshore wind farms because it is far away from shore, avoiding complaints about the visual impact of wind turbines, yet the water is shallow enough for traditional fixed foundation wind turbine designs. The bank was part of a large landmass, now known as Doggerland, which connected Britain to the European mainland until it was flooded some time after the end of the last glacial period. The Blea Wyke Sandstone Formation (Jurassic, Toarcian) of Rosedale, North Yorkshire, UK. At the North Seas Energy Forum in Brussels on 23 March 2017, Energinet.dk will sign a contract to work with the German and Dutch branches of TenneT; thereafter a feasibility study will be produced. Exposure at the base of the cliff, west of Saltwick Bay [NZ 908 113], south-east of Whitby, North Yorkshire. However, the best exposed and familiar sections are those in the ferruginous sandstone and ironstone lithofacies located near Whitby on the Yorkshire coast. exposed at Blea Wyke; Ravenscar) [NZ 991 015] where the bioturbated sandstone of the Blea Wyke Sandstone Formation (late Toarcian in age ) is overlain by the yellow brown sandstone of the Dogger Formation (Aalenian in age), although at Blea Wyke the basal bed contains phosphate pebbles and casts of brachiopods (the Terebratula Bed) (Cox and Sumbler, 2002, pp. Lithostratigraphic nomenclature of the UK North Sea.

The coastal region. International Journal of Offshore and Polar Engineering (1) Conference . Dogger Bank Peer Reviewed. 50, 129-142. Rastall, R H and Hemingway, J E. 1939. (Whitby.). From this period onwards—and certainly following the significant sea-level rise associated with the 8.2 ka event—it would be better to conceive of this landscape as the ‘Dogger Archipelago.’” It gives its name to the Dogger sea area used in the BBC Radio 4 Shipping Forecast. The action undertaken by Greenpeace had support from some of those in the fishing trade. Until the middle Pleistocene, Great Britain was a peninsula of Europe, connected by the massive chalk Weald–Artois Anticline across the Straits of Dover. Grey, fissile mudstone of the Alum Shale Member, Whitby Mudstone Formation (Lias Group) is overlain by yellow-brown, bioturbated, ferruginous sandstone with occasional berthierine (chamosite) ooids and phosphatized pebbles that comprise the Dogger Formation (0.75 to 1.5m thick). (Leeds: Yorkshire Geological Society.). Data and Information on the Dutch Subsurface. The Blea Wyke Beds and the Dogger in north-east Yorkshire. SSE and Statoil have confirmed the formation of a Joint Venture (JV) partnership to work collaboratively to progress three of the four consented Dogger Bank offshore wind projects towards Financial Investment Decisions. The upper boundary is marked by the sharp change from ferruginous, bioturbated sandstone of the Dogger Formation to grey, fine- to medium-grained, locally cross-bedded sandstone with plant fragments of the overlying Saltwick Formation (Ravenscar Group). It is located in the southern North Sea, approximately 150km north east of the Humber Estuary, and was formed by glacial processes before being submerged through sea level rise. Rastall, R H and Hemingway, J E. 1943. Rapid local lateral variation is illustrated by the absence of the basal pebble bed and overlying bioturbated sandstone bed at the nearby Yew Grain section [NZ 7172 0185] reported by Young, T P (1994, fig.3). Rastall, R H and Hemingway, J E. 1941. Data and Information on the Dutch Subsurface.

The Development, to which this Application relates, comprises the formation of a construction access to the site of the Dogger Bank C Wind Farm and Sofia Offshore Wind Farm (The Projects) Onshore Converter Stations (OCSs), awarded consent by the Dogger Bank Teesside A & B Offshore Wind Farm Order 2015 (as amended) (The DCO). The bank is non-vegetated and comprises moderately mobile, clean sandy sediments. [7] Geological Magazine, Vol.86, 201-225, 265-278. Dogger Bank is set to be the largest wind farm in the world with a combined capacity of 3.6GW. Geological Magazine, Vol.77, 177-197. Rawson, P F and Wright, J K (eds). GEOLOGY OF THE DOGGER BANK AREA, NORTH SEA H. J. VEENSTRA Geological Institute, State University, Groningen (The Netherlands) (Received.lanuary15, 1965) SUMMARY A sediment survey carried out on board H.M.S. During the last ice age the bank was part of a large landmass connecting Europe and the British Isles, now known as Doggerland. The result was a British victory, and the German navy delayed further significant action against the British fleet for more than a year. Quarterly Journal of the Geological Society, London, Vol.61, 441-460. A large part of the southern area of the bank is covered by water seldom deeper than 20 m below chart datum. 1990. The habitat comprises distinct banks (i.e. At the time of deposition, clastic sediments above the salt are uncompacted, contain siginficant pore space, and have a lower density than the salt. Many explainations of salt domes suggest that the lower density of salt, compared to the density of overlying rock units, is the driving force of salt dome formation. [2] The water depth ranges from 15 to 36 metres (50 to 120 ft), about 20 metres (65 ft) shallower than the surrounding sea. Black oolites in the Dogger of north-east Yorkshire. Worms burrow into the sand and then become a food source for larger animals, … Proceedings of the Yorkshire Geological Society, Vol. When Doggerland was being flooded, sea level rise was as much as 1-2 meters (3-6 feet) a century. Its hypocentre was 23 kilometres (14 mi) beneath the bank, and the quake was felt in countries all around the North Sea, causing damage across eastern England. [5], Fishing trawlers working the area have dredged up large amounts of moorpeat, remains of mammoth and rhinoceros, and occasionally Palaeolithic hunting artefacts.[6].

These indicate that the substratum of the Dogger Bank consists of moraine ridges belonging presumably to the Weichsel glaciation, the last Pleistocene glaciation. Marine Geol., 3 (1965) 245-262 256 H.J. elongated, rounded or irregular ‘mound’ shapes) which may arise from horizontal or sloping plains of sandy sediment. The Jurassic Rocks of Britain, Vol.1. Linklaters has advised on the construction, development and £5.5 billion project financing of the Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B phases of the Dogger Bank Wind Farm, owned by SSE Renewables and Equinor New Energy. During the Anglian glaciation, approximately 450,000 years ago, an ice sheet filled much of the North Sea, with a large proglacial lake in the southern part fed by the Rhine, Scheldt and Thames river systems. In this study, our aim is to describe in detail the timing and processes of formation of channel networks observed in the seismic reflection data using stratigraphic relationships, alongside palaeoclimate model simulations, to identify changes in temperature and precipitation at Dogger Bank. May be absent, locally, due to erosion prior to deposition of the overlying Saltwick Formation (Ravenscar Group). This section is less accessible than the coastal Type Section, but it provides an example of the mixed ironstone and sandstone lithofacies typical of the Eskdale area. 158-164 in Scrutton, C T and Powell, J H (eds), Yorkshire Rocks and Landscapes - A Field Guide, 3rd Edition, Yorkshire Geological Society.
