Navy ship carries out a hydrographic survey from Sines to the Gulf of Cadiz

Survey focuses on the areas of Sines, Sagres, Lagos, Portimão, Faro and Guadalquivir, the latter being centered on the Canyon of Faro and access to the Gulf of Cádiz

The Navy vessel NRP D. Carlos I, within the scope of the SEAMAP 2030 programme, is carrying out large-scale hydrographic surveys in mainland Portugal, until the end of February.

These hydrographic surveys aim to survey six areas in the vicinity of Sines and Sagres, more specifically in the traffic separation scheme, which facilitates more dynamic ship positioning work due to the density of maritime traffic.

The participation of the NRP D. Carlos I in this program also extends to the surroundings of Lagos, Portimão, Faro and Guadalquivir, the latter being centered on the Canyon of Faro and access to the Gulf of Cádiz.

These surveys allow obtaining a broad view of the seabed, in order to facilitate the classification of the type of sediment present, whether consisting of rock or sand.
