Abstract: The bathymetric survey of the Priyadarshini water body has been carried out using hydrobox and global positioning system. Three-dimensional bathymetric map has been prepared for the said water body. The instrumental bathymetric survey, in general matches with the earlier manually generated bathymetric data available for the water body. It provides fine details of the slope and depth at continuous points in Priyadarshini water body. The bathymetric map is discussed with respect to the adjacent catchment region. The detailed digitized bathymetric map will help to select ideal points for collection of sediment cores to unravel the geologic history of the water body.
