World Oceans Day:

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.
