A brief overview of some applications where unmanned autonomous or remote controlled boats have been used with ADCP or multi-beam sonars for river discharge and bathymetry, or with automated water sampling and multi-parameter sondes for water quality monitoring. They allow fast and accurate surveying which is not only cost efficient but above all, it is safe.
