What Is a Bathymetric Survey?

bathymetric survey involves measuring the depths of a riverbed or other body of water. The end result of this survey produces a map showing spot elevations and contours of a riverbed in relation to the mean sea level. The statistics received also inform the people living in certain areas of any potential or ongoing coastal erosion, rises in sea level and sinking land spots. Charts are produced that show seafloor relief or terrain as contour lines. The lines on these charts are called depth contours or iso-baths. These charts make navigation above or below the water safer. If safety is not a concern, such as in deep waters where the depths are quite deep, then this process may also use a digital terrain model to illustrate the depths being portrayed.​​


Bathymetric surveying has many uses for people throughout Brooklyn, NY. Some of the more prominent ones are calculating depth contours, how curved a body of water’s floor is and the depth of the floor. Scientists use satellites to get the most accurate results. However, we do not have those means, but it doesn’t mean we get results that are inaccurate, We are just surveying land on a smaller scale. A bathymetric survey has the ability to detect the subtle variations in sea level caused by the gravitational pull of ridges, undersea mountains, and other masses found in the ocean. Sea level, on average, is higher over mountains and ridges than over trenches and abyssal plains. ​​Bathymetric surveying is quite common in Brooklyn, since there is plenty of water surrounding the borough.
