Bathymetry is the study and measurement of the depth at various places in a body of water, including rivers, streams, and lakes.

Bathymetric surveys allow us to measure the depth of a water body as well as map the underwater features of a water body.  Multiple methods can be used for bathymetric surveys including multi-beam and single-beam surveys. We use bathymetric surveys for many different types of water bodies including:

  • Tailings storage facilities
  • Flooded pits
  • Dams
  • Lakes
  • Rivers
  • Streams

We use the BathyCat Survey Catamaran. It is a portable unmanned survey catamaran designed to complete bathymetric surveys with a single beam echo sounder while you are safely on the shore. It is also ideal for hard-to-reach areas where launching a boat is not an option.

Capabilities include:

  • Surveying water bodies up to 100m
  • Accuracy +/- 1cm for every 10m depth
  • Up to 10 pings per second
  • 9-degree beam width
  • 1km surveying range
