Abstract

Following the proposal of the offshore Anholt wind-farm project with an energy capacity of 400 megawatt in the Kattegat, southern Scandinavia, an evaluation of the geotechnical properties of the subsurface of the area is required. As a first step to map the seabed geology the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) conducted a geophysical survey (Leth et al. 2009) which, together with cone penetration tests and data from boreholes, lead to a greater understanding of the geological architecture and development of the 144 km2 survey area (Figs 1, 2).
