The morphology and palaeohydrology of a submerged glaciofluvial channel emerging from Waterford Harbour onto the nearshore continental shelf of the Celtic Sea

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper presents the results of an acoustic geophysical survey of the seabed of both Waterford Harbour and the nearshore continental shelf south-west of Hook Head. The survey revealed a probable submerged palaeochannel. Palaeomeander geometry and inferred sedimentology indicate that the palaeochannel was adjusted to discharges up to several orders of magnitude greater than those of the present. Together, these characteristics imply that the palaeochannel was probably formed by proglacial discharges of meltwater during a period of low sea level
