Abstract
    Initially, Burial Recording Mines (BRMs) were used to understand the sea mine burial. It was a technique predominantly related to military purpose. The first experiment was made 1974. Now a day, it is used as a valid tool for marine science. This methodology gives the rare opportunity to observe and analyze the processes acting on the seafloor directly, making the estimation closer to the reality. During MARIDIV, we present the results of 3 months experiment using burial recording mines. The experiment was performed between September 2008 and January 2009. The Wandelaar region on the Belgian Continental Shelf was chosen as suitable test area. 10,000 measurements of the sediment height around the cylindrical object were recorded, each one of those every 15 minutes. The dataset collected, together with sediment characterization and hydrological and meteorological information, allowed the understanding of the bedform migration. During the experiment, 2 storms passed the test area, in October and November 2008. Using Burial Recording Mines gave the rare opportunity to observe and analyze the storm impact directly on the sea-floor. Processes during and after the second storm will be revealed.
