Page 18-21: During the last week of a hydrographic survey of Lough Derg, Ireland’s third largest lake, the remnants of a preserved flooded landscape were unveiled beneath the surface with each passing swath. In early 2015, Geomara was commissioned by the utility company, Irish Water, to undertake a bathymetry and side-scan sonar survey of Lough Derg as part of the planning and design process for the Water Supply Project, Eastern and Midlands Region.
Page 22-25: the Bureau of Economic Geology, a research unit at the University of Texas at Austin, was contracted to conduct an airborne bathymetric Lidar survey on the Alaskan North Slope. The purpose of the project was to further determine, understand, and map the local landscape and thaw-lake attributes of an area west of the Dalton Highway and Sagavanirktok (Sag) River, approximately 30km southwest of Deadhorse, Alaska.
Page 26-29: Leica Geo-Systems conducted a series of demonstration surveys in Japan, which highlighted the capabilities of the HawkEye III Airborne Bathymetric Lidar system. The system demonstrated its capability with full datasets in diverse environments and it also set new records for depth penetration for both the HawkEye III deepwater sensor, and the Chiroptera II shallow-water sensor.
Page 15-17: Since October 2015, Capt Brian D. Connon has assumed the role of Director of the National GeospatialIntelligence Agency’s Maritime Safety Office. The organisation is an important, although not always visible, link in the global maritime safety chain. Their work contributes to generic marine safety and due to the nature of the data collected and analysed, their role is especially for security, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.
