Identification of marine habitats in Flensburg Fjord (Baltic Sea)c

Funding: State Government via State Agency of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Areas, LLUR
Fundig Period: July 2015 – June 2016

Short description: Shallow water coastal environments built up of boulder clay are wide-spread in the Baltic Sea. Due to relative sea level rise and coastal retreat they are mostly under abrasion, showing a high variability in sediment distribution patterns and colonization by numerous marine species. To identify and classify these seabed types respecting habitats, a multi-method investigation is applied by using side-scan sonar backscatter data, acoustic ground discrimination data, parametric echosounder data as well as grain size parameters. Calibration of backscatter data is supported by underwater video observations. This project, to be carried out in the low energy environment of Flensburg Fjord is a follow up of previously mapped areas (2009 – 2014) in the territorial waters of the Baltic Sea of Schleswig-Holstein (see previous projects).

Short description

The State Agency of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Areas is collect-ing a huge amount of hydroacoustic data with their system “Echo Plus” during their monitoring cruises in the North Sea and Baltic Sea which are carried out several times/year during different seasons. These Echo Plus data might be used to classify the seafloor sediment properties and to detect even different kinds of seafloor habitats. However, this needs cali-bration and comparison with other hydroacoustic devices under controlled conditions.

Cluster of Excellence University of Kiel The Future Ocean, Topic B6 Dangerous Ocean, DFG, 2007-2017

Collaborators: GEOMAR; several institutes at Kiel University
Contact person: Karl Stattegger
Main objective is to understand the causes and effects of large events with return periods of
decades to millennia or processes that occur on centennial to decadal time scales and impact changing and vulnerable coastal systems. Such events and processes include earthquakes, submarine slides and associated tsunamis, increasing large floods and storms, and rapid relative sea level rise related to delta subsidence and global warming.

Holocene evolution and present-day dynamics of the Parnaíba delta: response of a pristine delta to climate change and sea-level rise

CAPES, Brasilien, 2015-2017
Collaborators: Several institutes at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte
Contact person: Karl Stattegger
Pristine deltas pertaining undisturbed terrestrial sediment supply have become rare in the meantime. Investigation of the evolution and dynamics of such deltas is required on a regional scale to evaluate the influence of climate change and sea-level rise. The northeastern Brazilian Parnaíba Delta is highlighted in this context.

Baltic Sea water budget and sediment transport changes since the Littorina Transgression and their effects on the ecosystem

BMBF, 2015-2016
Collaborators: IOW, GEUS Kopenhagen
Contact person: Karl Stattegger
The cruise is designed to execute seismo- and hydroacoustic surveys, and sampling of Holocene sediments in the western, central and northeastern Baltic Sea. In particular, we investigate in more detail the magnitude and timing of the Littorina transgression as a phase of highly accelerated sea-level rise and its impact on the inflow of saline waters into the western Baltic.
