Sub Bottom Profiling

Specialized sonar systems are designed for looking beneath the floor of the watercourse / waterbody giving the user an idea of its composition. These sub-bottom profilers are used to provide the stratigraphy of the bottom. Skeena Geomatics uses these systems especially in cases where there is a desire to understand the bottom composition prior to dredging. Dredgers do not want to encounter any surprises or barriers to dredging.

Skeena Geomatics often ‘ground truths’ the sub-bottom records with vibe-coring, providing the clients with an understanding of what material types compose the layers evident in the sub-bottom record.
