Reply To: River Bathymetry/Cross-Sections


Hi Nick (and everyone else),

Its great to hear that things are moving forward in the software side of things.

Nick: Elevation data is quite restricted in Sweden for what was until recently historical reasons…

I can however probably dig out the cross-sections which will include topography. I’ll put you in contact with one of our researchers who you’ve also met in Scotland, David Gustafsson. He is also a satellite guy so I’m sure you have a lot to discuss.

We are not likely to enforce the use of GPS anytime soon in Sweden, however, we are slowly moving towards using it a lot more often for the following reasons.

  • Surface velocity
  • Input to our flood forecast modelling
  • QA/QC

Most of our RS5 measurements are being done with RTK-GNSS now even.
