May, H., Schrottke, K., Schwarzer, K.. Coarse-grained sediment distribution in shallow water of the south-western Baltic Sea (Germany). In: Schwarzer, K., Schrottke, K., Stattegger, K. (eds.). From Brazil to Thailand - New Results in Coastal Research. Coastline Reports (16), pp. 55-57. EUCC - Die Küsten Union Deutschland e.V., Rostock, 2010.

Zusammenfassung: Coarse-grained sediments like cobbles, stones and boulders commonly occur in the south-western Baltic Sea, mainly on submarine abrasion platforms in front of retreating soft-rock cliff coasts. These residual sediments seem to be an important source for the development of coarse-grained beach ridges, which play an essential role as shore protection element of the adjacent coastal lowlands. A new small-scaled, high frequency side-scan sonar (SSS) is used, to analyse large-scaled distribution pattern and characteristics of residual sediments in near-shore zones of the south-western Baltic Sea. Ground-truthing is done by scientific scuba divers. For the first time, detailed mapping of sediment distribution from the water line down to 8 m water depth were done in 2009, reflecting a broad spatial distribution of different residual sediments and sand bar systems.
