Coastal zone mapping with the world’s first airborne multibeam bathymetric lidar mapping system

Coastal zone mapping is becoming more and more important due to the magnified impacts on coastal communities due to climate change and the gradual but inexorable rise in global mean sea level. Accu-rate determination of the nearshore bathymetry and low-lying coastal terrain is vital for providing better modelling of the likely impact to areas due to storm surges and flooding. With this new concept in air-borne lidar bathymetry (ALB) technology, mapping this challenging domain is now more possible to achieve in an efficient and effective way.
