Abstract

Mecklenburg Bight (Baltic Sea) has various natural, geomorphological and sedimentological features reflecting hydrodynamic processes, sediment dynamics, biological activities and coastal development. This area is also strongly influenced by human activities like military exercises, professional fishing, dumping of dredged material and touristic activities. Bedforms such as small subaquatic dunes and sediment transport patterns, as well as features resulting from anthropogenic disturbances of the seafloor have been identified using hydroacoustic mapping techniques. A catalogue was prepared, showing different disturbances of natural seafloor conditions due to anthropogenic pressure. The sustainability of these features will be discussed.
