Geological Magazine, Vol.77, 177-197. 1994. As such, it has been proposed by various groups to designate the area a Marine Nature Reserve. Description Site overview. It was fought near Dogger Bank in the North Sea on January 24, 1915. The coastal region. The habitat comprises distinct banks (i.e. Exposure at the base of the cliff, west of Saltwick Bay [NZ 908 113], south-east of Whitby, North Yorkshire. “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 material, whereas east of the Dogger Bank is an extensive area (average depth 50 m) where fine silty sand is found. 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). 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 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]. Concerns had been raised when a supertrawler had been seen off the Yorkshire coast. Fluid and Rock Processes Laboratory Cluster, Rock Volume Characterisation Laboratory Cluster, Integrated resource management in Eastern Africa, Donations and loans of materials collections. Any in Geologic Time (1) Journal. 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. 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]. Data and Information on the Dutch Subsurface. 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. Lower and Middle Jurassic sediments of the Cleveland Basin N.E. [10], Construction was scheduled to start around 2014 at the earliest, but has been repeatedly postponed. The base of the overlying Saltwick Formation is marked by black, carbonaceous clay, passing up to yellow sandstone. Lithostratigraphical nomenclature of the Middle Jurassic strata of the Yorkshire Basin of north-east England. Lithostratigraphic nomenclature of the UK North Sea. Offshore Document Number: F-OFC-CH-001 ... caused or arisin g from reliance upon in formation provid ed herein. The Dogger Bank Formation is here subdivided into three informal seismostratigraphic units, termed the “Basal”, “Older” and “Younger” Dogger Bank, based on the geotechnical responses combined with lateral extent of significant seismic reflections. The bank is non-vegetated and comprises moderately mobile, clean sandy sediments. 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. The Dogger Bank is an extensive sublittoral sandbank in the southern North Sea formed by glacial processes and submergence through sea-level rise. Proceedings of the Yorkshire Geological Society, Vol.22, 265-279. The Dogger Bank Wind Farm will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world, once all three phases are complete in 2026. Collectively they will … The Yorkshire Dogger II. OnePetro (3) Date. 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. Knox, R W O'B, Howard, A S, Powell, J H and van Buchem, F S P. 1991. The catastrophic overflow of this lake carved a channel through the anticline, leading to the formation of the Channel River, which carried the combined Rhine, S… 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). 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. .... [it] is the equivalent to allowing bulldozers to plough through a protected forest. At the lower boundary, sand-filled burrows extend downwards from the Dogger Formation to the underlying mudstone. In: Knox, R W O'B and Cordey, W G (eds.) 43-53 in Powell, A J and Riding, J B (eds), Recent Developments in Applied Biostratigraphy.

About us; Report back; Contact; FAQ; News; Dutch; English Geologists' Association Guide, No.34. 1984. The Dogger Bank is the largest single continuous expanse of shallow sandbank in UK waters. May be absent, locally, due to erosion prior to deposition of the overlying Saltwick Formation (Ravenscar Group). Lithostratigraphy and depositional history of the late Toarcian sequence at Ravenscar, Yorkshire. [2] At differing times during the last glacial period it was either joined to the mainland or an island. In central, north and west Cleveland there is a complex interdigitation between grey, weathering yellow-brown, berthierine (chamosite) ooidal ironstone (with siderite mudstone matrix) and pale grey limestone, medium-grained, bioclastic wackestone and packstone with peloids and ooids, generally bioturbated and locally cross-bedded. 2005. (Whitby.). The broader landscape became increasingly fragmented by the formation of estuaries, inlets and islands (Gearey et al. Field Excursion Guide, No.5; 13th International Sedimentological Congress, Nottingham, UK. Hemingway, J E. 1974. 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. Geological Magazine, Vol.86, 201-225, 265-278. England: Shallow marine and paralic facies seen in their sequence stratigraphic context. It gives its name to the Dogger sea area used in the BBC Radio 4 Shipping Forecast. Butler, N, Charnock, M A, Hager, K O and Watkins, C A. Dogger Bank Peer Reviewed. 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. [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. Proceedings of the Yorkshire Geological Society, Vol. Moreover, grab samples of boulder clay were collected in a few places. 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. British Geological Survey, Nottingham. 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 12,000 sq km (4,600 sq mile) area … 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"). Dogger Bank is an important habitat for crabs, brittlestar starfish, jellyfish, clams, plaice, sole and sand eels. 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). "[4], Geologically, the feature is most likely a moraine, formed during the Pleistocene. Dogger Bank Formation. Geology of the country around Thirsk. Memoir of the Geological Survey of the United Kingdom. British Geological Survey, Nottingham. International Journal of Offshore and Polar Engineering (1) Conference . 1992. The Dogger Bank Creyke Beck project includes the joint development of two 1.2GW offshore wind farms in the North Sea. The Yorkshire Dogger III. 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. 2). What causes the Earth’s climate to change? Rastall, R H and Hemingway, J E. 1939. The researchers’ paper explains “The broader landscape became increasingly fragmented by the formation of estuaries, inlets, and islands. The lithofacies variation of the Dogger Formation makes selection of a type section difficult. Quarterly Journal of the Geological Society, London, Vol.61, 441-460. Although the rate of MDAC formation is unknown, examples of leaves and anthropogenic material (industrial slag) partially encrusted in MDAC indicate that formation occurs on a human, rather than a geological, time scale (Andrews, 1988; Judd et al., submitted). 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). 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. Jurassic of the Central and Northern North Sea. 7. Dogger In the Whitby area and coastal sections to the southeast, the formation consists mainly of grey, weathering yellow-brown, sideritic sandstone, medium- to coarse-grained, with sporadic phosphatic pebbles; berthierine (chamosite) ooids may be present. Topmenu. 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. 158-164 in Scrutton, C T and Powell, J H (eds), Yorkshire Rocks and Landscapes - A Field Guide, 3rd Edition, Yorkshire Geological Society. 66pp. The seafloor of the North Sea preserved many artifacts of Mesolithic people, including perfect sets of footprints left by the nomadic tribes, some containing up to 39 perfectly preserved prints. Geological Magazine, Vol.80, 209-230. Highly variable and heterolithic with substantial lateral interdigitation and lithofacies changes. The upper boundary is unconformable or disconformable, sharp. Post-Triassic of the Southern North Sea. The Basal Dogger Bank comprises a series of discrete bank-like deposits (Fig. 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). Battle of Dogger Bank, naval engagement between British and German battle cruisers during World War I. [9], In January 2010, a licence to develop a wind farm on Dogger Bank was granted to Forewind Ltd, a consortium of developers. 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.’” [11], Dutch, German, and Danish electrical grid operators are cooperating in a project to build a North Sea Wind Power Hub complex on one or more artificial islands to be constructed on Dogger Bank as part of a European system for sustainable electricity.
