Hydrography

What is hydrography?  This is the science of measuring and describing water features and depths for the primary purpose of navigation. 

At the open house, there will be stations to showcase:

  • How we monitor tides, currents and water levels
  • Collect high resolution data from the ocean floor (including one of the vessels used to do so)
  • Produce navigational charts and other publications to ensure the safe navigation of our Canadian waterways
