Seismic imaging of medieval dike remains in the Wadden Sea (North Frisia, Germany)

Dikes protected cultural lands along the Wadden Sea coast in medieval North Frisia. Remains of dikes must be found to reconstruct the drowned and lost landscapes. Certain imprints in sediment layers due to former load can be linked to eroded dikes. Sediment echosounding provides sections of these imprints and reveals dike courses. Medieval dikes have been traced at Hallig Südfall and south of Sylt.
