A better knowledge of shallow waters bathymetry is mandatory to understand the processes which control the evolution of coastal environments and to enable decision making and strategies for an improved coastline management.
Bathymetric data are also important to determine an initial state prior to construction works, near-shore mining extractions or other marine infrastructures (transport, energy) and evaluate their impacts on coastal environments.
