Coastal Consulting & Exploration performs bathymetric surveys with different degrees of resolution, data density and accuracy according to the finalities of the survey and the specific demands of the Clients.

These ranging from the easiest survey, where bathymetric data are acquired by a single beam echo sounder along sections opportunely spaced, to the most complexes, executed with different types of high resolution multi beam echo sounders. This is the latest marine technology, that allow to investigate completely the seafloor with high detail and great density of data. The newer dual-had multi beam system provides up to 20,000 depth measurements per second.

The acquired data are post-processed using the latest software package available currently on the market.

These different surveys require different work procedures, starting from the planning to the survey up to the post processing phases.
