- Bathymetric data were collected from May to August
2014 in the northwest channel of Inishmore Island,
Ireland by the Marine Institute and Geological Survey of
Ireland as part of the INFOMAR Project. The vessel used
to collect this data was the R/V Celtic Voyager, with a
Kongsberg EM2040, and 2D and 3D bathymetric and
backscatter surfaces were created using CARIS HIPS and
SIPS 9.1. During the Carboniferous Period (359-299 Ma)
a shallow sea formed causing the formation of the Aran
Islands and nearby Burren. The shallow, warm tropical
seas allowed for the deposition of biogenic carbonate
sediments which would eventually form limestone. This
study site has since been greatly affected by tectonic
uplift, sea level rise and fall and glacial action. The
submarine glacio-karst features were examined to help
understand the relationship of the study site to the
adjacent terrestrial areas.
