Abstract:
This service Continental Shelf contributes to the sustainable management of the natural resources of Belgium by regulating the exploitation of sand and gravel in the territorial sea and on the continental shelf of Belgium.; ; This work consists of:; the monitoring of the extraction activities,; the monitoring of the effects of these activities on the marine environment, the cartography of the bathymetry, the morphology and the composition of the sea bottom and; the actualisation of the legislation concerning san and gravel extraction at sea.
