Summary

Bathymetric data were collected over all boatable areas of Upper Klamath and Agency Lakes, located in South-Central Oregon, in May and June of 1996. Areas that were too shallow (less than 1.2m) and/or covered with aquatic vegetation were not mapped. A 21ft tunnel-hull boat was fitted with an adjustable transducer mount on the stern. The transducer was mounted on the starboard side of the prop to minimize prop noise interference. A global positioning system (GPS) "rover" receiver's antennae mast was mounted directly above the transducer and connected to a Trimble 4000 GPS receiver. Differential correction updates were provided to the Trimble receiver at 1 second intervals from an OmniStar (John Chance Co., Houston, Texas) real-time [...]
