Offshore, the Dogger Formation is equivalent, in part, to the Wroot Formation (Lott and Knox,1994) in the southern North Sea and in part to the Drake Formation in the Brent Province (Butler et al., 2005). Jurassic. From this period onwards—and certainly following the significant sea-level rise associated with the 8.2 ka event—it would be better to conceive of this landscape as the ‘Dogger Archipelago.’” The Yorkshire Dogger III. The 1931 Dogger Bank earthquake took place below the bank, measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale and was the largest earthquake ever recorded in the United Kingdom. Rastall, R H and Hemingway, J E. 1949. Explanation; Quickstart; Subsurface models. 1992. elongated, rounded or irregular ‘mound’ shapes) which may arise from horizontal or sloping plains of sandy sediment. 158-164 in Scrutton, C T and Powell, J H (eds), Yorkshire Rocks and Landscapes - A Field Guide, 3rd Edition, Yorkshire Geological Society. Mineralogy. (Whitby.). The Dogger Bank Creyke Beck project includes the joint development of two 1.2GW offshore wind farms in the North Sea. Grey, fissile mudstone of the Alum Shale Member, Whitby Mudstone Formation (Lias Group) is overlain by yellow-brown, bioturbated, ferruginous sandstone with occasional berthierine (chamosite) ooids and phosphatized pebbles that comprise the Dogger Formation (0.75 to 1.5m thick). Clasts in the Dogger Formation include mudstone pebbles, and fragments of ammonites and bivalves derived from the underlying Alum Shale Member. Rastall, R H and Hemingway, J E. 1943. It gives its name to the Dogger sea area used in the BBC Radio 4 Shipping Forecast. The formation is locally absent in the Cleveland Basin, especially on parts of the Egton Sheet (Ingleby Greenhow) and Thirsk Sheet (Hambleton Hills), where the Dogger Formation has been removed by penecontemporaneous erosion prior to deposition of the overlying Saltwick Formation (Ravenscar Group). 357-361). Fox-Strangways, C. 1892. Black, M. 1934. The researchers’ paper explains “The broader landscape became increasingly fragmented by the formation of estuaries, inlets, and islands. The bank is non-vegetated and comprises moderately mobile, clean sandy sediments. Lower Eskdale. In this study, our aim is to describe in detail the timing and processes of formation of channel networks observed in the seismic reflection data using stratigraphic relationships, alongside palaeoclimate model simulations, to identify changes in temperature and precipitation at Dogger Bank.

Memoir of the Geological Survey of the United Kingdom. Research Article A great wave: the Storegga tsunami and the end of Doggerland? The action undertaken by Greenpeace had support from some of those in the fishing trade. The oldest of these formations is the Dogger Bank Formation that comprises massive clays, sands and diamicts of glacial origin (Cotterill et al., 2017a), subdivided informally in this study into the Lower and Upper Dogger Bank sub-units. 161-233 in Rayner, D H and Hemingway, J E (eds), The geology and mineral resources of Yorkshire. The British, Dutch and German sectors of the Dogger Bank are all protected as a Special Area of Conservation under the EU Habitats Directive for the rich fauna they contain – which includes worms, crabs, clams, small flatfish and brittle stars, which form a food source for fish and other wildlife. Its hypocentre was 23 kilometres (14 mi) beneath the bank, and the quake was felt in countries all around the North Sea, causing damage across eastern England. Explanation Rapid local lateral variation is illustrated by the absence of the basal pebble bed and overlying bioturbated sandstone bed at the nearby Yew Grain section [NZ 7172 0185] reported by Young, T P (1994, fig.3). 1994. The Basal Dogger Bank comprises a series of discrete bank-like deposits (Fig. Sample location 145 is situated south of the Dogger Bank, sample location 228 is situated on the Dogger Bank. Thought locally to attain 29 m in the Rosedale area [SE 729 946] (Hemingway, 1974, p. 188), although Young, T P (1994) regards much of this strata as belonging to the underlying Blea Wyke Sandstone Formation in which case the Dogger Formation here is up to about 8 m thick. 3. A sediment survey carried out on board H.M.S. The Blea Wyke Sandstone Formation (Jurassic, Toarcian) of Rosedale, North Yorkshire, UK. Marked by an abrupt upward transition from ferruginous sandstone, ironstone or limestone at the top of the Dogger Formation to cross-stratified, non-bioturbated sandstone, siltstone and mudstone (commonly with plant fragments) of the overlying Saltwick Formation (Ravenscar Group). Worms burrow into the sand and then become a food source for larger animals, … Several shipwrecks lie on the bank. The result was a British victory, and the German navy delayed further significant action against the British fleet for more than a year. Geology of the country around Thirsk. [9], In January 2010, a licence to develop a wind farm on Dogger Bank was granted to Forewind Ltd, a consortium of developers. The seafloor of the North Sea preserved many artifacts of Mesolithic people, including perfect sets of footprints left by the nomadic tribes, some containing up to 39 perfectly preserved prints. Geological Magazine, Vol.86, 201-225, 265-278. However, the best exposed and familiar sections are those in the ferruginous sandstone and ironstone lithofacies located near Whitby on the Yorkshire coast. The upper boundary is marked by the sharp change from ferruginous, bioturbated sandstone of the Dogger Formation to grey, fine- to medium-grained, locally cross-bedded sandstone with plant fragments of the overlying Saltwick Formation (Ravenscar Group). Moreover, grab samples of boulder clay were collected in a few places. The coastal region. Battle of Dogger Bank, naval engagement between British and German battle cruisers during World War I. Black oolites in the Dogger of north-east Yorkshire. Until the middle Pleistocene, Great Britain was a peninsula of Europe, connected by the massive chalk Weald–Artois Anticline across the Straits of Dover. Status: Designated. Richards, P C, Lott, G K, Johnson, H, Knox, R W O'B. The Dogger Formation occurs as variable lithofacies across the Cleveland Basin from the Yorkshire Coast, near Whitby [NZ 480 500] to the Hambleton Hills [SE 496 827] and Howardian Hills [SE 600 600]. (-208). Rastall, R H. 1905. Geological Magazine, Vol.78, 351-370. The base of the overlying Saltwick Formation is marked by black, carbonaceous clay, passing up to yellow sandstone. Subsurface data.

Many explainations of salt domes suggest that the lower density of salt, compared to the density of overlying rock units, is the driving force of salt dome formation. and Riding, J B. .... [it] is the equivalent to allowing bulldozers to plough through a protected forest. It has long been known by fishermen to be a productive fishing bank; it was named after the doggers, medieval Dutch fishing boats especially used for catching cod. At the time of deposition, clastic sediments above the salt are uncompacted, contain siginficant pore space, and have a lower density than the salt. England: Shallow marine and paralic facies seen in their sequence stratigraphic context. In the Rosedale area, the base of the formation is generally marked by an ooidal ironstone with phosphatic pebbles sharply overlying bioturbated sandstone or ooidal ironstone of the Blea Wyke Sandstone Formation (Young, T P, 1994), although in localities where these lithologies repeat, the boundary may be difficult to place. When Doggerland was being flooded, sea level rise was as much as 1-2 meters (3-6 feet) a century. [10], Construction was scheduled to start around 2014 at the earliest, but has been repeatedly postponed. Data and Information on the Dutch Subsurface. 2). A large part of the southern area of the bank is covered by water seldom deeper than 20 m below chart datum. A crag at Yew Grain [NZ 717 018] near Great Fryup, Upper Eskdale, reported in Rastall and Hemingway (1943, p.219) is typical of the ironstone and sandstone lithofacies. May be absent, locally, due to erosion prior to deposition of the overlying Saltwick Formation (Ravenscar Group). (Ongar: PSS Group.). 2005. Rastall, R H and Hemingway, J E. 1940. The Yorkshire Dogger IV. 1984. Originally projected to develop up to 9 gigawatts of power as part of a planned nine zone project of 32 gigawatts, the plan was later scaled down to a 7.2-gigawatt installation in agreement with the area's owner Crown Estates. Earlier than January, 2015 (2) 2017 (1) to. Highly variable and heterolithic with substantial lateral interdigitation and lithofacies changes. The uplands, comprising the current Dogger Bank, would probably have been cut off , forming Dogger Island, which survived for approximately another millennium. exposed at Blea Wyke; Ravenscar) [NZ 991 015] where the bioturbated sandstone of the Blea Wyke Sandstone Formation (late Toarcian in age ) is overlain by the yellow brown sandstone of the Dogger Formation (Aalenian in age), although at Blea Wyke the basal bed contains phosphate pebbles and casts of brachiopods (the Terebratula Bed) (Cox and Sumbler, 2002, pp. Description Site overview. Rastall, R H and Hemingway, J E. 1939.

Read more. South of Dogger Bank is the Cleaver Bank. The broader landscape became increasingly fragmented by the formation of estuaries, inlets and islands (Gearey et al. These indicate that the substratum of the Dogger Bank consists of moraine ridges belonging presumably to the Weichsel glaciation, the last Pleistocene glaciation. 1993. The projects Dogger Bank Wind Farm is an offshore wind farm being developed in three phases – Dogger Bank A, Dogger Bank B and Dogger Bank C – located between 130km and 190km from the North East coast of England at their nearest points. Any in SPE Disciplines (3) Geologic Time. [2] The water depth ranges from 15 to 36 metres (50 to 120 ft), about 20 metres (65 ft) shallower than the surrounding sea. The Development, to which this Application relates, comprises the formation of a construction access to the site of the Dogger Bank C Wind Farm and Sofia Offshore Wind Farm (The Projects) Onshore Converter Stations (OCSs), awarded consent by the Dogger Bank Teesside A & B Offshore Wind Farm Order 2015 (as amended) (The DCO). [2] At differing times during the last glacial period it was either joined to the mainland or an island. Hemingway, J E and Knox, R W O'B. SSE and Statoil have confirmed the formation of a Joint Venture (JV) partnership to work collaboratively to progress three of the four consented Dogger Bank offshore wind projects towards Financial Investment Decisions.

Dogger Bank has been identified as an oceanic environment that exhibits high primary productivity throughout the year in the form of phytoplankton. During the Anglian glaciation, approximately 450,000 years ago, an ice sheet filled much of the North Sea, with a large proglacial lake in the southern part fed by the Rhine, Scheldt and Thames river systems. Where both formations are dominated by mudstone, the boundary may be somewhat cryptic – that of the Dogger Formation is dark grey, less silty and of a distinctly marine aspect, that of the Saltwick Formation is paler grey, silty and with black plant debris. Grey fine-grained sandstone and, locally, siderite mudstone of the Whitby Mudstone Formation is overlain sharply by a thin phosphatic pebble bed that marks the base of the Dogger Formation, and which passes up to blue-grey, bioturbated sandstone (1.07m), black mudstone (0.61m) and green siltstone (0.15m) ("Danby Facies") that are, in turn, overlain by green-grey, fine-grained sandstone (0.91m) and black to grey chamosite ooidal ironstone (3.96m), with a siderite matrix ("Ajalon facies"). The catastrophic overflow of this lake carved a channel through the anticline, leading to the formation of the Channel River, which carried the combined Rhine, S… Rosedale and Farndale. Dogger Bank is set to be the largest wind farm in the world with a combined capacity of 3.6GW. Across most of the Cleveland Basin, the lower boundary is generally sharp, disconformable or unconformable on the gently folded Lower Jurassic Lias Group, marked by an abrupt change where grey fissile mudstone of the Lower Jurassic Whitby Mudstone Formation is overlain by sandstone, ironstone or limestone of the Dogger Formation.
