Advanced Hydrology Hydraulic Geomorphology


Ahydtech has expertise to provide solutions to the following areas:

Coastal Engineering

AHYDTECH senior members possess extensive expertise and can provide services in Coastal Engineering including shoreline management, shoreline erosion protection, marina design and the implementation of waterfront projects. We have experience in following coastal engineering projects: Seawall, Revetment, Groin & Marina Design, Erosion & Flooding Hazard Delineation, Shoreline Inventory, Shoreline Structural Condition Assessment, Bathymetry Data Collection, 2D and 3D hydrodynamic, Sediment Transport and Water Quality Modeling, Shoreline Erosion and Dynamic Beach Analysis, Shoreline Design and Protection Works, and Water Quality Modeling and Analysis. We provide services in shoreline management, permit and approval from the regulating agencies, determination of Erosion and Flooding Hazard limits, Shoreline Erosion protection, Seawall, Revetment and Groin design, Marina design and the implementation of waterfront projects.

Fluvial Geomorphology

AHYDTECH Geomorphic can offer practical applications of Fluvial Geomorphology in the following areas: Subwatershed Studies, Subdivision & Environmental Impact Reports, Municipal Sewer and Watermain Crossing, Road Construction & Widening, and Bridge & Culvert Installation/Replacement. AHYDTECH Geomorphic can provide Fluvial Geomorphic services in the following fields: Natural Channel Design, Meander Belt Width & Hazard Limit Estimation, Channel Restoration, Channel Realignment, Field Geomorphic Assessment & Monitoring, Sediment Transport Measurement & Monitoring, River Bank Erosion Protection, River & Stream Scour Control and Monitoring.

Hydrology & Hydraulic Modeling

AHYDTECH employees possess the ability to analyze and produce complex fluvial models. AHYDTECH has resources to provide innovative techniques and solutions through the application of hydrologic and hydraulic models to make more accurate predictions and to face the major challenges in water resources management.

Stormwater Management for Development Applications

At AHYDTECH Geomorphic, we are able to produce various tools to manage stormwater flow for development applications. These tools include floodplain mapping, flood hazard analysis, water quality monitoring and other various stormwater management applications.

Environmental Assessment

AHYDTECH Geomorphic employees are highly trained in the field of Environmental Assessment. We can provide various analytical and numerical modeling techniques, fluvial geomorphic applications and other hands-on environmental assessment applications. These methods can be used to develop detailed assessments.

Topography and Bathymetry Surveying

AHYDTECH Geomorphic has professional civil engineer (P. Eng.) who can perform topography and bathymetry survey. Our surveying staff members have experience in completing cross-section and topographic survey for natural channel design, channel restoration and stream stabilization, coastal engineering structure inspection, and channel/shoreline restoration/naturalization purposes. We use Drone DJI Phantom 4 RTK + D- RTK, GPS and GNSS unite and Nikon DTM-322 total station to perform survey. AHYDECH has Lowrance Elite-4 CHIRP and HY1500 Digital Echo Sounder bathymetric survey unit, which has a recording sonar to measure depth and GPS to provide geo-reference coordinates.

Automated Bathymetry – Unmanned Surface Vessel

AHYDTECH has an Unmanned Surveying Vehicle (USV) for measurement of bathymetry using HY1500 Digital Echo Sounder bathymetric survey unit. It uses an onboard computer, GPS/RTK, depth sounder and other instruments. The boat’s powerful outdrives are capable of reaching speed up to 3m/s and efficient V-bottom design produces smooth, predictable, agile handling even rough waters. The 2 electric propellers provide thrust while producing little noise, this improve the quality of the acoustic sounders data. Its remote- control range is about 2km. The USV has 4-hour battery life. When used with a land based computer, it has the Hydra-II software for automated guidance and route planning.
