Marine EcoSol was contracted by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) to analyse seabed imagery collected in 2014 from the Solan Bank Reef Site of Community Importance (SCI). This report details the video and stills analysis methods employed and summary results of the analysis.
 

Introduction

 

The seabed survey of the Solan Bank Reef SCI was organised by the JNCC but undertaken jointly by JNCC and Marine Scotland Science (MSS) staff in 2014 from the MRV Scotia. The vessel departed from Aberdeen on 28 October 2014, and returned on 9 November 2014.

Both still imagery and video data were collected from 166 transects using a Drop Down Video (DDV) frame. Imagery was collected from the Solan Bank Reef SCI area in line with the JNCC survey plan (O’Connor 2014).
