Scatterplot to validate Satellite-Derived Bathymetry against traditional survey measurements in Dublin Bay, Ireland. c/ EOMAP

Dublin Bay’s water clarity allowed to apply Satellite-Derived Bathymetry to map the seafloor down to 7.8 m at the time of satellite image recording. This equals to 5 meters below LAT, whereas the MBES survey data did not cover the intertidal depth.

Interesting finding: On this coastal site with higher turbidity, the combination of both surveys allowed for a seamless bathymetric grid from +3 meters LAT down to deeper water.
