Abstract

Mapping of the seabed and sub-seabed strata in an area comprising offshore banks and intervening sediments in outer Dublin Bay is presented. Bathymetric comparisons, 7 acoustic seabed facies, grain-size data and bedform interpretations are presented and discussed. Relationships are drawn with models of offshore bank evolution suggesting that the Irish examples are quasi-stable. Banks genesis, however, may relate more to former conditions of post-glacial rapid sea-level rise and high sediment input
