Ice Thickness Measurement from Space
SMOS is delivering key information on soil moisture and ocean salinity for science, and its data are being used for a growing number of practical applications. Reflecting this versatility along with new synergistic opportunities, the mission will now remain operational until at least 2017. The most recent examples from this multi-talented mission include being able to provide information to measure thin ice floating in the polar seas accurately enough for forecasting and ship routing. »»

During the conference, Optech president Max Elbaz will join a panel to discuss the many applications of bathymetric/topographic lidar systems and data from 11:00AM to 12:00PM on Tuesday 29 July. »»

Turbulence in Marine Environments Survey Successful

  22/07/2014
Partrac, UK, has completed a turbulence survey for the Carbon Trust-managed Turbulence in Marine Environments (TiME) project. According to Partrac, this is the first time that a survey has been designed specifically to measure turbulence using different methods and technologies so that each can be evaluated, and turbulence can be mapped across a tidal energy development site. The survey included four standard ADCP units, and one advanced five beam Nortek AD2CP unit, each positioned on the sea bed. Three of the locations were at positions where tidal turbines will be installed. »»
 
Closer Eye on Australian waters

Closer Eye on Australian waters

  22/07/2014
German and Australian scientists have launched water quality monitoring tools that will enable anyone in the world to zoom in on what is stirring up under the surface of Australian waters. Germany-based aquatic remote sensing company EOMAP teamed up with Western Australian statutory authority Landgate to deliver these products. The products measure visibility, turbidity and chlorophyll concentrations in the water column. The result are digital maps that are continuously updated as these parameters vary across the oceans and coastal waters. »»
