Taldykol Lake

Project Name: Taldykol Lake

Scope: Bathymetric & Sediment Survey

Client: Alsim Alarko Sanayi Tesisleri ve Ticaret A.S.

Location: Astana, Kazakhstan

GEOTEC carried out the works of preparation of the current and 3D lake map of Taldykol Lake which is located at Southwest of Astana under the Taldykol Sewer Pond Liquidation Project with Re-Cultivation. GEOTEC performed Geodetic Survey, Bathymetric Survey and Subbottom Survey (sediment survey) at field. Sediment survey was performed using a high resolution subbottom profiler which allows penetration up to 40 m (max.) penetration in soft mud from lakebed. This system was operated together with bathymetric survey system. With singlebeam echosounder, the seabed was determined precisely, the subbottom profiler provided data from the lakebed and mud over the original lake floor.
