Project Description: A aerial survey of Icebreaker Channel and the surrounding waters will be conducted in order to collect measurements that will be useful in determining a safe shipping zone. A bathymetry will be used to take measurements of water depth. This device is mounted to an aircraft; this aircraft then flies over the areas of interest to collect water depth information. This type of data collection has been used to map Simpson, Dolphin and Union Straits.
