The Mexican General Office of Oceanography, Hydrography and Meteorology is organising the Second Mexican Hydrography Convention, to be held from 8 to 10 December 2014 in Manzanillo, Colima, Mexico. The theme is ‘Hydrography – more than Nautical Charts’. »»
Starting the fourth quarter of 2014, C & C Technologies' Marine Construction Survey Division will use HYPACK 2014 as the standard solution for anchor handling and positioning. The anchor handling routine in HYPACK 2014 will allow both the main vessel and anchor handling vessel (tug) operators to graphically display the status and location of anchors and their cables, track their movement and deployment, and send the anchor locations to the anchor handling vessel operators. »»
Cable Trackers Help Diving Companies and Military

Cable Trackers Help Diving Companies and Military

  01/10/2014
Trying to locate subsea power and communications cables can pose a challenge. Regulations require cables be buried from several feet to several metres under the ocean bottom to prevent snagging by boat anchors and fishing trawls. The amount of overburden on a cable often means it’s too deep to be located with conventional metal detection equipment. A cable tracker has proved most effective in finding them. »»

On Macquarie (Australia), south west of New Zealand, recently park rangers have found a Dutch message in a bottle, about two years after it was sent off near Cape Horn (South America). Physical oceanographer Leo Maas of the NIOZ (Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research) calculated the bottle travelled more than 18,000km following the Antarctica ocean current. »»
Sparker System for Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences

Sparker System for Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences

  30/09/2014
Orangelamp from Beijing has signed a contract with the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences (CAGS) for the supply of a new SIG Pulse L5 sparker system. CAGS is an organisation engaged in geosciences research. The expected working depth will be within 2,000m. The L5 is the extended version of the SIG Pulse M2, which allows the user to go from the shallow water environment to the deeper waters. The second extension box adds up the power necessary to 6000 joules. »»

SUNRISE Project Connecting Swarms of AUVs into Internet of Things

  30/09/2014
The SUNRISE project, supported by the EU within the 7th Framework Programme, focuses on wireless underwater networks that enable cooperation between different underwater devices. Project collaborators combine their expertise and resources aiming for underwater “Internet of Things” - a complete system of self-organised underwater vehicles, intelligent sensors and actuators with flexible communication, networking and navigation capabilities, that performs the required sensing and monitoring tasks controlled from anywhere in the world over Internet. »»

Bathymetry of the Western Australian Sea Floor

 

Bathymetry is the study and mapping of seafloor topography. It involves obtaining measurements of the depth of the ocean and is equivalent to mapping topography on land. The bathymetric survey will produce a map that charts the contours, depths and hardness of the ocean floor. The video by Geoscience Australia is not the result of the MH370 survey, but demonstrates the type of information and detail that is being gathered.
