3 Bathymetric Survey Overview  Goal: Collect baseline elevation data for Napa Plant Site, Wash ponds, & Ponds 9&10  With future surveys we can document geomorphological changes that have occurred since restoration of tidal flow

4 Bathymetry Survey Methods Pelican Case with Navisound RTK Antenna Console with laptop & RTK Transducer

5 Bathymetry Survey Methods  100m transects Ponds 9 & 10 Wash Ponds

6 Bathymetry Survey Methods  200m transects

7 Ponds 9 & 10 ~ Current Elevation  Mean elevation: 0.71 ± 0.40m (mean ± SE)  Elevation Range: to 1.55m
