RM Surveys take on the Blackwood!
Over the past month RM Surveys have completed a bathymetric survey of the Blackwood River.
Starting from the Hardy Inlet in the town of Augusta, RM Surveys surveyors, Tom Munsie & Zach Howes, cruised 32km up the Blackwood River capturing depth soundings to the river bed.
The soundings were time stamped with RTK GPS positions, (horizontal and vertical) to produce an amazing Digital Terrain Model of the River bed – there were pools of up to 18m deep over 20kms up river from Hardy Inlet.
Tom, also an enthusiastic drone pilot, took some great shots of the Blackwood on what looked like a ‘terrible’ winters day!
