Bathymetric Profiling

Storage of water for irrigation and other purposes is becoming increasingly important. It is important to know as accurately as possible the amount of water that can be stored or is available at various levels within the dam. Over time dam volumes can reduce through sediment buildup and for other reasons.

Using state-of-the-art acoustic profiling equipment, Envirolink Ltd can conduct a benthic survey for any given body of water. Several surveys carried out over a period of time can estimate sediment aggradation and help gain insight into changes in water availability for storage dams.

Post survey processing can produce an estimate of the volume at the time of the survey as well as bathymetric charts to help visualise benthic topography. The software is also capable of modelling aquatic weed growth.
