With a deep understanding of the challenges of surveying underwater environments and their environs, Murphy Geospatial offer unparalleled experience and efficiency. We are specialists in inshore and near-shore hydrographic surveys from inland waterways to rivers, lakes and coastal survey.Contact
A good hydraulic model relies heavily on the data inputs used to build the model, particularly the existing bathymetry of the watercourse and topography of its banks and surroundings. Therefore accurate, verified survey data is a key element of a reliable hydraulic model which then enables the planning and design of flood defence measures where necessary. Consequently, the certainty provided from a reliable model can maximise the return on investment in planning of flood management programmes.
Our near-shore and coastal surveys help our clients understand the changes in bed levels next to key shipping and harbour channels, and to predict the severity of coastal erosion. The data we generate is used to monitor changes along our coasts which are constantly in flux. Our data is used to plan coastal defence barriers or plan dredging operations, ensuring that our key harbour infrastructure remains operational.
As the world adjusts and adapts to the challenges of climate change, accurate hydraulic modelling of our watercourses is critical to predicting the behaviour of rivers during heavy or prolonged rainfall events.
