A Phase I study for a drone-based, bathymetric-simulation video scan of the Sydney College of the Arts, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, site at the altitude of 80m above sea level, the USGS estimate for sea level change under full glacial melt conditions. A planned Phase II video will more accurately scan an area delineated by vectors describing the flow of two Triassic river systems that deposited the main stratigraphic units beneath Sydney. A Phase III bathymetric scan of the site and related sites is also planned to utilize, drone-based scientific-level LIDAR visualization. The water-overlay segment of the second half of the video is a study for one form of sea level visualization of full glacial melt.
