Hydrographic Surveys

Hydrographic Surveys play a crucial role in mapping and understanding bodies of water, including oceans, lakes, rivers, and reservoirs. These surveys involve collecting precise and detailed data to create accurate charts, maps, and models of the underwater features and conditions.

At Strydom and Associates, we specialize in conducting professional Hydrographic Surveys to meet a variety of needs. Our experienced team utilizes advanced hydrographic equipment and techniques to ensure accurate and reliable data collection in both shallow and deep water environments.

The key components of Hydrographic Surveys include:

1. Bathymetry: This involves measuring water depths and mapping the underwater terrain. We utilize echo sounding systems, such as multibeam sonar, to acquire high-resolution bathymetric data, enabling us to create detailed depth contours and identify potential hazards.

2. Sub-bottom Profiling: To understand the geological characteristics beneath the seafloor, we employ sub-bottom profiling techniques. By emitting sound waves into the seabed and analyzing the reflected signals, we can determine the sediment layers, identify buried structures, and assess the seabed composition.

3. Navigation and Positioning: Precise positioning is critical in hydrographic surveys. We employ Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and other positioning technologies to accurately locate survey vessels or platforms, ensuring the georeferencing of collected data.

4. Data Processing and Analysis: Our skilled team utilizes specialized software and hydrographic processing techniques to analyze the collected data, generate detailed charts, maps, and models, and extract valuable information for various applications.

Whether you require hydrographic surveys for nautical charting, port and harbor infrastructure planning, environmental assessments, or offshore resource exploration, we have the expertise and resources to deliver accurate and reliable results.
