A progress report on the bathymetric survey of Windereme undertaken in June 1937 by the Hydrographic Department of the Admiralty. The brief article outlines the background of the surveying process as well as the initial effectiveness of the survey work. There is a brief background to the geomorphological processes which were involved in shaping the Lake District topography, as well as some explanation of previous studies undertaken in the area. The report includes a figure showing the cross sections of lake beds and a figure detailing a core from the bottom deposits of Windermere.
