Abstract

The need for sustainable energy is rising, and at the moment wind energy is one of the few forms of renewable energy that can be harvested efficiently.We investigated the influence of an offshore wind farm on the large-scale morphodynamics of the seabed.To this aim, we developed a morphodynamic model to investigate the effect of offshore wind farms on the seabed. By implementing the model in a GIS environment, the model allows us to calculate the effects of a wind farm using location specific and park design input parameters. By implementing an analytical model in a GIS, a rapid calculation of the effects of an offshore wind farmat a certain location in the North Sea can be made.
