Europeís Deepest Glider to be Developed
19 partners from across Europe have come together to develop Europeís first ultra-deep-sea robot glider. This glider will be capable of sampling the ocean autonomously at depths of 5,000m, and maybe more in the future, for up to three months at a time. This project, which includes the National Oceanography Centre (NOC), has won EUR8M of funding from the European Unionís Horizon2020 programme to develop and test this innovative new technology. »»
R/V Aranda Turns into Next Generation Marine Research
The Finnish marine research vessel Aranda will be renovated to meet the needs of future marine research in the Baltic Sea. The renovation reduces the vessel's operating costs, increases its energy efficiency and reduces its emissions. At the same time, the vessel's modernisation makes it the Finnish marine industry's flagship of competence in the design and construction of special-purpose vessels. »»

25 Years Scientific Service for RV Heincke - and Counting

  06/07/2015
A quarter of a century old, with over 900,000 kilometres (488,842 nautical miles) logged and still on the cutting edge of science and technology: 8 July 2015 will mark the Research Vessel Heinckeís 25th birthday. Staff from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI, Germany), which operates the Heincke, take part in expeditions with the ship just as often as fellow researchers and students from Germany and abroad. »»

HELCOM Contributes to Report on Oceans and the Law of the Sea

  02/07/2015
HELCOM, Finland, contributes an update each year to the report of the United Nations Secretary-General on oceans and the law of the sea. The contribution from 30 June 2015 provides an overview of the organisationís activities in 2014-15, with the more specific angle to report on the implementation to the previous UN General Assembly Resolution dated on 29 December 2014. The next full report will be considered by the General Assembly in its 70th session in September 2015. »»
 
Oceans of Colour

Oceans of Colour

  02/07/2015
Natural water colour measurements are based on multi- and hyper-spectral measurements performed in the field and from space. A simpler approach to determine the colour of natural waters is by means of the Forel-Ule colour comparator scale. This scale has been applied globally and extensively by oceanographers and limnologists since the 19th century. Colour classification according to the Forel-Ule method through participatory science, i.e. with the help of the public, as developed within the EU project Citizensí Observatory for Coast and Ocean Optical Monitoring (Citclops) will connect the present with the past. »»

How to Use QPS' Qimera to Validate Processed Point Files

QPS Qimera processing software has been released earlier this year. To demonstrate the capabilities, this video shows how to load processed point files into a Qimera Project. It explains what processed point files are; how to specify the coordinate system of the project and the source files; how to create a Dynamic Surface from processed point files and how to change the dynamic surface and adjust the colour map to aid data editing and validation.
