Lineage Data was collected across the FISA12, FISA13 and FINA13 areas in the North and South Falklands Basins, as part of an Environmental Baseline Survey (EBS) for Noble Energy (Falklands) Limited on survey vessel Poseidon. Data collected included bathymetry and mapping of the seabed, water quality (CTD) testing, and geochemical, macrofaunal and sediment sampling from box-corers and 0.1m2 grab-samplers. Photographs and video footage of the seabed was also obtained from drop-down camera system. Further details of the EBS can be found in the ESHIA (Environmental, Social and Health Impact Assessment) report. Report with data is available
