Lower Moors Topographic Survey

During December 2016 GEOSIGHT were commissioned by specialist hydrological consultancy services Milestone Environmental to conduct a topographic survey across the Lower Moors SSSI.

GEOSIGHT land surveyors spent several days on the beautiful island of St Marys in the Scilly Islands conducting a wide area topographic survey of the Lower Moors SSSI in support of an ongoing hydrological monitoring programme for the Council of the Isles of Scilly and the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust to quantify the site dynamics and update the site's Management Plan.

Alongside performing the topographic survey, GEOSIGHT positioned 18 Dip wells and Stilling wells and collected sufficient topographic detail of the complex drainage ditch network to create both long and cross sections over several kilometres of ditch networks.
