DESCRIPTION

Vivaqua is a drinking water company that exploits a former quarry as a raw water buffer. In order to collect representative water quality monitoring with good spatial coverage and explore the spatio-temporal variations in water quality, therefor the surveys were carried out using the Aqua Drone® .

Aqua Drone® is very flexible  towards sensor (water quality, bathymetry for volume determination, water currents, video, …) integration. This project focused on algae mapping, both just below the water surface as well as in depth profiling, using the Aqua Drone® sensor winch. This allows to study dynamic stratifaction in the water body.
