Abstract
    During the Bremerhaven Workshop in the southern North Sea, REMOTS sediment profile images (SPI) were recorded in order to supplement the benthic component of the workshop and other environmentally relevant parameters investigated along a spatial gradient at an abandoned exploratory drilling site off the Dutch coast. The sampling stations were in accordance with the other studies, but due to bad weather conditions only a small proportion of the intended samples were taken. The profile data were supplemented by video recordings of the sediment surface features taken on a second cruise. The results presented here have important implications for the interpretation of other benthic and sediment samples, and may help to interpret some enigmatic workshop data.
