DID YOU KNOW
You can get bathymetry data from satellites?
Bathymetry is a key element in Hydrodynamic Modelling and Marine Spatial Planning activities.
Accurate and detailed bathymetry data is therefore an important factor for a successful implementation of a sustainable Blue Economy.
We celebrate World Oceans Day with an example of a bathymetry map from an area with intense focus on Offshore Wind Energy.
Here the Satellite-Derived Bathymetry has been merged with other existing data sets to create a seamless, fully updated and detailed bathymetry layer.
In recent years, advances in the satellite technology and physical modelling has allowed for vast improvements in the accuracy and availability of Satellite-Derived Bathymetry data.
It is also much more cost-efficient than traditional survey methods and mitigates the environmental impact of onsite surveys.
