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. 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. Yes (1) Source. VEENSTRA Dogger Bank, whereas BERTHO1S (1957) mentioned basalt, gneiss, granite, rhyolite, andesite, schists, quartzite, sandstone and … A large part of the southern area of the bank is covered by water seldom deeper than 20 m below chart datum. 158-164 in Scrutton, C T and Powell, J H (eds), Yorkshire Rocks and Landscapes - A Field Guide, 3rd Edition, Yorkshire Geological Society. Any in SPE Disciplines (3) Geologic Time. "[4], Geologically, the feature is most likely a moraine, formed during the Pleistocene. Rastall, R H and Hemingway, J E. 1943. That is a misconception. The Yorkshire Dogger I. The Dogger Bank Wind Farm will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world, once all three phases are complete in 2026. 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). The Blea Wyke Sandstone Formation (Jurassic, Toarcian) of Rosedale, North Yorkshire, UK. Upper Eskdale. Battle of Dogger Bank, naval engagement between British and German battle cruisers during World War I. 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. The broader landscape became increasingly fragmented by the formation of estuaries, inlets and islands (Gearey et al. Geology of the country around Thirsk. 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. High resolution seismic data from the Dogger Bank in the central southern North Sea has revealed that the Dogger Bank Formation records a complex history of sedimentation and penecontemporaneous, large-scale, ice-marginal to proglacial glacitectonic deformation. What causes the Earth’s climate to change? The uplands, comprising the current Dogger Bank, would probably have been cut off , forming Dogger Island, which survived for approximately another millennium. Data and Information on the Dutch Subsurface. The type section is located between Whitby East Cliff [NZ 903 114] and Saltwick Bay [NZ 915 110] (Hemingway and Knox, 1973; Hemingway, 1974).

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. Until the middle Pleistocene, Great Britain was a peninsula of Europe, connected by the massive chalk Weald–Artois Anticline across the Straits of Dover. 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. 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. Dogger Bank Creyke Beck A and B would be built 77 miles (125km) off the Yorkshire coast. The researchers’ paper explains “The broader landscape became increasingly fragmented by the formation of estuaries, inlets, and islands. Hoofdnavigatie. British Geological Survey, Nottingham. In the Rosedale area, the base of the formation is generally marked by an ooidal ironstone with phosphatic pebbles sharply overlying bioturbated sandstone or ooidal ironstone of the Blea Wyke Sandstone Formation (Young, T P, 1994), although in localities where these lithologies repeat, the boundary may be difficult to place. Lower and Middle Jurassic sediments of the Cleveland Basin N.E. 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). On the higher grounds, the Dogger Bank and Cleaver Bank (Fig.2), are patches covered with pebbles. When Doggerland was being flooded, sea level rise was as much as 1-2 meters (3-6 feet) a century. Research Article A great wave: the Storegga tsunami and the end of Doggerland? The upper boundary is unconformable or disconformable, sharp. Black oolites in the Dogger of north-east Yorkshire. Exposure at the base of the cliff, west of Saltwick Bay [NZ 908 113], south-east of Whitby, North Yorkshire. The habitat comprises distinct banks (i.e. Rastall, R H and Hemingway, J E. 1949. Concerns had been raised when a supertrawler had been seen off the Yorkshire coast. Several shipwrecks lie on the bank. Highlight matches. 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. “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. (-208). 1973. 2). [7] Rastall, R H. 1905. Sedimentation of the Aalenian rocks of Yorkshire. Description Site overview. The bank is an important fishing area, with cod and herring being caught in large numbers. It gives its name to the Dogger sea area used in the BBC Radio 4 Shipping Forecast. 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. 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. Cleveland Basin, North Yorkshire, including the North Yorks Moors, North Yorkshire coast (between Boulby and Gristhorpe Bay) and the Howardian Hills. 2005. 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. 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. 161-233 in Rayner, D H and Hemingway, J E (eds), The geology and mineral resources of Yorkshire. Highlight matches. DOGGER BANK CREYKE BECK F-OFC-MA-001 Figure 1.1 Dogger Bank Creyke Beck DRAWING NUMBER: VER DATE 1 24/09/2012 REMARKS Checked Draft DRAWING TITLE PROJECT TITLE LEGEND D at … 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. Fox-Strangways, C. 1892. Dogger Bank is set to be the largest wind farm in the world with a combined capacity of 3.6GW.

Reference Gearey, Hopla, Boomer, Smith, Marshall, Fitch, Griffiths, Tappin, Williams, Hill, Boomer and Wilkinson 2017: 49). Probably named after a synonym for the German Bight, the southeastern bight of the North Sea bounded by the Netherlands and Germany to the south, and Denmark and Germany to the east. 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).
