between Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Analysis of Explosions in the BGS Seismic Database in the Area
of Beaufort's Dyke, 1992-2004: A report prepared for the Ministry
of Defence. / : G Ford, L Ottemöller, B Baptie. - Edinburgh :
British Geological Survey 2005.
Beaufort's Dyke in the North Channel, and surrounding waters were
used as a munitions disposal site during the 20th Century, with
significant quantities after the two world wars and the last
dumping in 1976. The British Geological Survey (BGS) over the years
has detected explosions in this area on their seismograph network.
Significant explosions were located and kept in the database. The
BGS seismicity database also contained smaller explosions that
possibly originated from this area, but had not undergone analysis
and were thus not given a location. This report describes work
carried out to complete the catalogue of underwater explosions in
the Beaufort's Dyke area. Using detection on the nearby seismograph
networks as search criterion, a total of 186 explosions were
considered in this study.
