Multi-Beam Bathymetry for Quarry Survey

24th April, 2017

LandScope recently completed a multi-beam bathymetry survey to establish the volumes of suction dredging activity within a lake.

Given the environment, it was imperative that the solution was not intrusive and did not adversely affect ongoing dredging operations. Deploying the R2Sonic 2020 multibeam system and R2INS (Applanix Wavemaster) it was possible to mobilise on our small survey vessel ‘Polecat’ and develop a sub-surface digital terrain model of the full extent of the quarry within two days.

The resultant output clearly illustrates the dredge areas allowing for future excavation campaigns to be better planned.
