Full description

Four locations along the Kimberley coast were video and depth surveyed to describe the substratum type, biohabitat type and the bathymetry of the seabed. Video and depth data was collected between 9 - 29 June 2008 from the vicinity of Gourdon Bay, Quondong Coulomb Point, Perpendicular Head and Packer Island.

Depth sounding data from vessels and tide gauges were analysed to obtain tide-height corrected depth data to generate bathymetric contour maps. These maps were used by the Northern Development Taskforce as part of a selection process to rank the suitability of a range of locations for a proposed common-user liquefied natural gas hub precinct.

Lineage

Bathymetric maps of the 5, 10, 15, 17 and 20 m depth contours were produced from vessel sounding data and tide gauges for the four survey locations. Maps were generated in ArcGIS Version 9.2 and produced in both printed (A1) and electronic *.png file formats.

For more detailed methods refer to project report.
