Title: 'Sea Vigil' water quality monitoring : Lincolnshire coast report 1994
Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
The NRA had an obligation to monitor and safeguard the coastal waters of England and Wales out to a designated 3 nautical mile limit. To meet this obligation, Anglian Region uses a purpose-designed coastal survey vessel, 'Sea Vigil', purchased in 1991. Data from the surveys along the Lincolnshire Coast are reported here. Their purpose was to gain information on the nutrient levels in the coastal waters of the Anglian Region and to investigate some potentially "sensitive areas". The Lincolnshire Coast between the Wash and the Humber is a 60 km stretch of relatively featureless sandy coastline with occasional mudflats. The sea is relatively shallow, being charted at less than 10 metres throughout the survey area.
