North Sea Palaeolandscapes
North Sea Palaeolandscapes is a remarkable project utilizing 3D seismic data to generate models which will be of enormous value to the geological and archaeological community (as well as to the aggregate extraction industry). The University of Birmingham is the lead organisation and other contributing organizations include the University of Southampton, BGS (British Geological Survey), Petroleum Geo-Services, English Heritage, BMAPA (British Marine Aggregate Producers Association), Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund, TNO (Netherlands Institute of Applied Geoscience) and Tigress. It is funded by Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund (administered by English Heritage). The project runs from October 2005 - March 2007.
