Multibeam Survey of Aurora Harbor, Juneau Alaska

Scope of Project

In the Spring of 2013 Hughes & Associates was tasked by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Alaska District to conduct a topographic, hydrographic, and control survey for Aurora Harbor. Aurora Harbor is located in the city of Juneau in Southeast Alaska. Aurora Harbor is approximately 570 miles southwest of Anchorage and northwest of downtown Juneau. Aurora Harbor is approximately 2,200 feet running southeast to northwest and extends 500 feet from shoreline with two project depths of -12.0 feet and -14.0 feet Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW). The project required a complete vertical control update, horizontal control verification, and topographic and hydrographic surveys of the project limits.
