Burial depth monitoring system installed in Flanders

Fluves installed in october 2015 a system to measure continuously the burial depth of a cable for the Flemish Environmental Agency (VMM).

A hybrid cable, combining power & fiber optic, covers every m² of the 5000 m² lake. By measuring the burial depth of the cable, the bathymetry is continuously measured.

A digital terrain model of the trap is available on an hourly basis until the end of 2016.
