The two most common forms of Hydrographic Surveys are; Multi-beam imaging for locating sunken boats, hidden features or just for general waterway mapping and Single-Beam dual-frequency surveys used for quantifying water to silt/sediment levels within a waterbody.
Waterbodies all around the UK can, over time, become shallower and eventually dry out due to the build-up of silt and sediment on the bed of the Waterbody. Silt is formed due to debris building up within the waterbody, for instance; leaves, fallen trees, decayed aquatic plant life and fish and animal waste as well as all other forms of pollution. As this build-up increases it may become necessary to remove the unwanted silt. This would mean a Hydrographic Survey would be required to calculate the amount of silt that needs to be removed.
