Jan 01, 2005 As the extraction of marine sand and gravel has its primary impact at the seabed, assessment of the effects of this activity has conventionally targeted bottom substrata and the associated benthic fauna (Millner et al., 1977; Desprez, 2000; Van Dalfsen et al., 2000).

Oct 15, 2015 Consider, for example, the UK marine aggregate dredging sector, which produces sand and gravel (aggregate) from licensed extraction areas around the coast of England and Wales (Highley et al., 2007, Russell, 2011). Primary impacts of aggregate dredging occur at the seabed, and result from the direct removal of sediment and associated benthic fauna.

Sand and Gravel Extraction in the North Sea

Sand and gravel were first extracted from Belgian waters in 1976 (29,000 m³). Marine sand extraction has gradually increased over the years due to growing demand for marine sand following the exhaustion of sand quarries on land. A total of 2,800,000 m³ of sand was extracted from the Belgian area of the North Sea in 2015.

Sand and Gravel an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Offshore sand and gravel extraction involves the abstraction of sediments from a bed which is always covered with seawater. This activity started in the early 20th century (in the mid-1920s, in the United Kingdom), but did not reach a significant scale until the 1960s and 1970s, when markets for marine sand and gravel expanded and dredging technology improved (Fig. 1).
