Hydrographic Surveys

ABPmer operates a survey team which undertakes hydrographic and field investigations throughout the UK and overseas. We have readily deployable vessels for near-shore and river survey. Our equipment pool carries an extensive range of instrumentation for bathymetric surveying, 2D and 3D flow monitoring, water levels, multi-parameter water sampling and remote monitoring, grab sampling and coastal zone mapping.

The service is supported by a fully equipped sediment analysis laboratory, associate arrangements and computer facilities for data analysis, presentation and map and chart production.

Key Services:

  • Chart generation
  • Data Collection & Analysis
  • Hydrographic surveys and investigations
  • Particle Size Analysis

Selected Project Experience:
