Abstract

Most of the inland lakes do not have up-to-date bathymetry. However, a significant progress in surveying technologies creates a possibility to quickly and accurately describe the underwater environment. Modern geodetic and global positioning techniques integrated with hydroacoustic systems provide a great opportunity to study the bottom shape with high resolution. Our study presents a reliable methodology for investigation of bathymetry and morphometric parameters with the use of GNSS positioning techniques and single beam echosounder. The research was implemented on the deepest, glacial reservoir in the central part of European Depression - Lake Hancza. Direct hydroacoustic and geodetic measurements completed by sediment study were conducted by the authors in 2010-2013. After performing a field survey the Digital Elevation Model was constructed and the new bathymetric map and morphometric card were elaborated. The maximum depth was confirmed to be 105.55 m. The final conclusions show that the available bathymetric data and morphometric parameters of lakes are highly dependent on the research methodology used, the precision and accuracy of measurement techniques, proper water level determination, digital elevation model and bathymetric map elaboration processes.
