Multibeam bathymetry in Peoria Lock, near Peoria, Illinois, September 19, 2019

The bathymetry (bottom elevation) of the downstream lock approach and lock chamber of Peoria Lock, near Peoria, Illinois, was surveyed on September 19, 2019. The data were collected using a multibeam echo-sounder mapping system (MBMS) with integrated inertial navigation solution (INS) mounted on a manned survey vessel.
