Abstract
    The marine aggregate extraction industry in the North Sea is well established and growing. The article reviews the potential physical impact of sand and gravel extraction. The impact is site-specific and depends on numerous factors, including extraction method, sediment type and mobility, bottom topography, and bottom current strength.
