Who Needs a Bathymetric Survey?
What is a Bathymetric Survey?
Single Beam vs Multibeam
After surveying the same survey extents with an SBES and then an MBES, the end result of the two products can be seen in the images below:
Although MBES produces a superior result, SBES has its advantages when it comes to shallow water. MBES achieves a swath coverage that is relative to the depth of water being surveyed whereas single beam generally achieves the same coverage regardless of the depth of water. So, in water depths of less than 4m, it can be more efficient and cost effective to mobilise a SBES system. When a high-resolution survey is required in depths of water greater than 5m, the efficiency of the MBES system quickly exceeds the SBES solution.
Providing clients with the best possible solutions for bathymetric surveying using SBES and MBES is the emphasis of our company. Only by acquiring superior data can our skilled staff create the highest quality bathymetric maps and reports.
