About this product

Language: French

Morlaix Bay, closed by Île de Batz to the west, the cliffs of Morlaix in the east, and the archipelago of Méloine in the north, is one of the jewels of the Brittany coast, popular for its biological diversity, but much less known for its geological features. Its underwater morphology is a maze made up of many islands and shoals, originally a mosaic of sedimentary provinces influenced by tides, currents and sediment.

This synthesis (paper and digital) brings together the ten-year work by Ifremer on the depths in that region. It serves the interestes of a broad community curious about the environment: coastal morphology, dynamics and sedimentary resources of the Brittany coast.

The morpho-bathymetric map is accurate to the meter at a 1:30 000 scale, and covers this exceptional underwater scenery, from the wide plains to the beaches. The maps lists superficial sedimentary formations on the same scale, the 18 categories of sedimentary facies, ranging from flat bottom gravel, to sand vases lining the bottom of the estuaries of the bay. The last map is a multi-thematic composition on a 1:100 000 scale which presents the entire region, from Lannion to the Île de Batz. The topics address both the sedimentary cover, the carbonate content, and sedimentary transits generated by currents.

Summary in French:
La baie de Morlaix, fermée par l’île de Batz à l’ouest, les falaises de Primel-Trégastel à l’est, et l’archipel de la Méloine au nord, est un des joyaux de la côte bretonne appréciée pour sa diversité biologique mais beaucoup moins connue par ses particularités géologiques. Sa morphologie sous-marine est une sorte de labyrinthe, composé de nombreux îlots et hauts-fonds, à l’origine d’une mosaïque de provinces sédimentaires où se confrontent à chaque marée, courants et sédiments.

Cette synthèse (au format papier et numérique) regroupe les travaux menés depuis une dizaine d’années par l’Ifremer sur les fonds de cette région. Elle répond ainsi à la préoccupation d’une large communauté curieuse de son environnement : la morphologie du littoral, la dynamique et les ressources sédimentaires des fonds côtiers bretons.

La carte morpho-bathymétrique restitue au mètre près, à l’échelle 1/30 000, des paysages sous-marins exceptionnels, depuis le large jusqu’aux plages. La carte des formations sédimentaires superficielles répertorie à la même échelle, les 18 catégories de faciès sédimentaires, allant des fonds plats à cailloutis, jusqu’aux vases sableuses qui tapissent le fond des estuaires de la baie. La dernière carte est une composition multi-thématique au 1/100 000 qui présente l’ensemble de la région, de Lannion à l’île de Batz. Les thèmes abordent aussi bien la couverture sédimentaire, que la teneur en carbonate, ou les transits sédimentaires générés par les courants.
