Hydrography

The Hydrographic Surveys (HS) comprise a set of operations conducted in rivers, maritime bars, coastal and port areas, to determine depths, in accordance with international recommendations (S-44). In addition to updating nautical charts - essential for the development of safe and efficient maritime transport systems - HS information is essential for the development of bathymetric models for application in environmental, geophysical and engineering studies. To determine the depths, SONAR technology, LiDAR and/or RADAR and multispectral orbital platforms are used.
