RM Surveys recently completed Bathymetric surveys of seven ponds in the Fitzroy River located in the West Kimberley region of Western Australia.

Accessing the ponds was extremely difficult due to the remote location and rough terrain. Using our latest remote controlled Accura boat, a Bathymetric survey was conducted using Dual Frequency Cee Echo sounder. This unique method enabled RM Surveys to survey the ‘soft’ lake bottom and ‘hard’ lake bottom and compute the volume of sediment, sediment ranges and sediment distribution.
