To survey a large reservoir in central China, Hydro-Tech installed their MS400U multibeam echosounder on to an unmanned surface vessel, which communicated with a survey vessel. Read more >>

The reservoir has complex underwater terrain spanning 830 square kilometers beneath about 300million cubic meters of water. The survey is being carried out to find an accurate storage capacity of the reservoir, while observing any erosion and sedimentation to plan fro dredging.

The full report from Hydro-Tech goes into:
