    Figure 4b in the Project and Site Description (PSD) contains a large number of obstructions in the northeastern part of the HKNWFZ. Can you please provide information about the nature of these obstructions and potential associated exclusion zones?

        Figure 4b in the PSD is referring to the Archaeological Desk Study (phase I) which is unfortunately causing some confusion. The contacts in this Figure 4b were reported by Rijkswaterstaat in 2013 for the sand extraction area in the northeast corner of the HKNWFZ. The results of the Archaeological Desk Study are superseded by the Archaeological Assessment (phase II) of the geophysical results. In this geophysical survey some of the reported obstructions were detected and reported as debris or boulders while most of them were not detected. All results are described in the Archaeological Assessment (phase II): https://offshorewind.rvo.nl/file/view/55040115/Report+-+Archaeological+Assessment+%28Phase+II%29+-+Periplus+Archeomare.
