STR First to Invest in Sonardyne Syrinx DVL
Subsea Technology and Rentals (STR, UK) has become the first company to invest in the Sonardyne Syrinx Doppler Velocity Log (DVL). The order for two 4,000 metre depth rated units was placed at the recent Ocean Business exhibition in Southampton in response to demands from STR’s customers globally for a DVL that is capable of providing high integrity, high performance navigation over a wide range of altitudes and seabed types. The introduction of Syrinx, Sonardyne’s first ever DVL, is a natural extension of the company’s existing 6G and SPRINT product lines and follows a major research and development program aimed at creating a new performance benchmark for 600kHz DVLs. »»
Fugro Sets Water Depth Record For Seafloor Drills
Fugro has set a new seafloor drill water depth record of 2,923 metres (9,589 feet) while completing a combined sampling and piezocone penetration testing (PCPT) borehole to 62 metres (203 feet) below the seafloor. Achieved using its ‘Seafloor Drill I,’ the single deployment in the Walker Ridge area of the Gulf of Mexico exceeded the previous water depth mark for seabed-based drilling technology. »»
Ocean Currents Impact Methane Consumption

Ocean Currents Impact Methane Consumption

  24/04/2015
An interdisciplinary study conducted by researchers at the University of Basel and the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel could now show that ocean currents can have a strong impact on methane removal. Offshore the Norwegian Svalbard archipelago, methane gas is seeping out of the seabed in several hundred meters depth. Luckily, bacteria are consuming a large proportion of the methane before it reaches the surface and is released to the atmosphere, where it acts as a greenhouse gas. The journal Nature Geoscience has published the study. »»

RV Geo Resolution Christened in Singapore

  23/04/2015
EGS managers gathered for the christening and blessing ceremony of the RV Geo Resolution, the latest addition to EGS’s fleet of deep water-capable hydrographic and geophysical survey vessels. EGS purchased the 68m-long RV Geo Resolution (formerly HMNZS Resolution) from the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) where she had been the principal hydrographic survey ship. Originally designed and constructed for the US Navy (formerly USNS Tenacious) she was the 17th of a class of 18 Stalwart-class surveillance ships. »»

South West Pacific Survey with Airborne Laser Bathymetry

  23/04/2015
Fugro has commissioned an additional airborne laser bathymetry system to underpin its development and application of bathymetric Lidar technology. The combined Fugro LADS Mk3 and Riegl VQ-820-G systems provide seamless measurements and mapping of nearshore and shallow-water environments. The increased capability will enable Fugro to deliver simultaneous topographic and bathymetric surveys in multiple geographical areas. »»
