December 2012 - February 2013: Land & Sea Surveying Completes the Winter Semi-Annual Survey at Sebastian Inlet, Florida.
December 26, 2012: Land & Sea Surveying completes emergency survey of the North Channel for dredging.
Land & Sea Surveying began working with the City of Ft. Pierce in October 2004 when we provided hydrographic surveys for the dredging of this same channel. That was immediatly following the hurricane season that brought 4 hurricanes to Florida and we had to work though a nearly demolished marina. Since then, we have surveyed the channel in 2006, 2007 and 2008 for clearance in addition to Moores Creek and the Marina basin for dredge projects in 2006 and 2007. We are also currently involved with a project to build a man-made barrier island in front of the marina to provide protection from future hurricanes.

July - August 2012: Summer 2012 Survey at Sebastian Inlet
Land & Sea Surveying performs a survey of the inlet with beach profiles to the north and south every six months. This summer the survey also included a post-dredge survey of the channel from the inlet to the Intracoastal Waterway.
The pictures below show images of the reef above surveyed with the Reson 7125 Multibeam Survey system. We collected the data using Reson's PDS2000 software. The data shown is approximately 17,000 feet long and 3,500 feet wide. The data was collected on a 2-foot cell grid and we were able to complete the survey with 1.5 days in the field and about 4 hours post-processing. From the data, we are able to produce geo-referenced TIFF or JPEG files (as shown below) and an ASCII file with accuracies to plus or minus 0.10 feet. We collected simultaneous 200kHz single beam data which was compared to the 400 kHz multibeam data with fantastic closures.
July 23, 2012: Submerged Cable Location in Elizabeth River, Portsmouth, Virginia for Level 3 Communications

March to May, 2012: Land & Sea Surveying collected images of wrecks off the coast at Cape Canaveral, Florida using Reson Seabat 7125 Multibeam System with PDS2000 software
"Dutch Wreck" -- Steamship Laertes
The Dutch steamship Laertes was built in 1919 by Taikoo Dockyard & Engineering Company, Hong Kong. Owned by Nederland Stoomy, she was 423.9 feet long, had a 52.3 foot beam, displaced 5,825 tons and was pushed by a single screw triple expansion engine. The Laertes was powered by a 413 nhp triple expansion engine and had a top speed of 13.5 knots.
On May 3, 1942, the Laertes was torpedoed and sunk by a German submarine. Some say it was the work of the U-564, while others claim it was the U-109. At the time she was on a voyage from New York to Bombay, with a 5,230 ton cargo of war supplies, including three aircraft, 17 tanks and 20 trucks. A total of 18 of her crew went down with her.
Today the Laerte's scattered wreckage sits in 72 feet of water eleven miles off Port Canaveral. This wreck is also locally known as the Dutch Wreck.
The SS Leslie was built in 1919 in Duluth, Michigan, as the Lake Flagstaff. She later sailed under the names Stella Lykes and Josephine, before being renamed Leslie. She was 251 feet long, had a 44 foot beam and displaced 2,609 gross tons. The Leslie was owned by Worth Steamship Company of New York and was under the command of Captain Albert Ericksson. On April 12, 1942, she was torpedoed by the German submarine U-123. At the time she was en route from Antilla, Cuba, to New York with a cargo of 3,300 tons of sugar. Out of a complement of 31 crew and one passenger, four of her crew were lost.
Today the Leslie wreck sits in 80 feet of water, 21 miles off Port Canaveral.
This artificial reef, while locally known as the "Sub Wreck", is actually old camera observation tower debris from the space center.
February 2012: Hydrographic surveying projects in Tampa Bay area using Reson SeaBat 7125 Multibeam System with Side Scan and the new SeaArk Survey Vessel "The Beast"
Land & Sea Surveying was contracted to survey an area surrounding a pipeline exposure to search for any objects that may pose a hazard to anchoring of a barge for repairingthe exposure. We surveyed the area using the SeaBat 7125 for bathymetric and side scan data and the Geometrics G-882 Marine Magnetometer.
Land & Sea Surveying also performed a survey of a second pipeline in the Tampa Bay area to determine the depth of cover. In performing this survey we located the pipeline using the Geometrics G-882 Marine Magnetometer, then surveyed the area using the SeaBat 7125 multibeam to search for pipeline exposures and a SDI singlebeam 200kHz systems for bathymetry. To determine depth of cover, we utilized the SDI BSS+5 sub-bottom profiler system with 12, 50, and 200 kHz transducers.
January & March, 2012: Land & Sea Surveying worked with Florida Institute of Technology on Coastal Engineering Projects using the SeaArk Survey/Research Vessel

March 2013: Land & Sea Surveying surveys the Ocean Venus (AKA the "Lead Wreck") off coast of Cape Canaveral, Florida.
The Ocean Venus "Lead Wreck", a British freighter, was sunk by a German U-boat on May 3rd 1942. It was later flattened for navigation purposes. The ship was known for its cargo of lead, though it held 9,450 tons of general cargo including 4,000 tons of lead, 4,000 tons of lumber, 80 tons of acetone and 1,000 tons of canned herrings. The ship was torpedoed and sunk by U-564 commanded by Reinhard Suhren. The Master, Captain John Park, 37 crew and 4 gunners landed at Cape Canaveral. Five crew were lost. Now mainly stripped of its cargo, the ship sits in approximately 80 feet of water out of Port Canaveral and is host to many different species of fish and marine life.
Ocean (British Liberty) Class Merchant
The ship was built by Permanente Metals Corp in Richmond, California for the British Ministry of War Transport and was one of sixty Ocean (British LIberty) class merchant ships. The ship's measurements were registered at 441.5 x 57 feet. Gross tonnage was 7,174 and deadweight was 10,500 tons. Speed was 11 knots.
