Quick-release Oceanographic Instrument Clamp

The Quick-Clamp is a system for attaching instruments to mooring lines. Designed by the National Oceanography Centre, UK, the instrument is manufactured under license by Elkins Oceanic Services Ltd and sold by Planet Ocean. It allows quick installation and release of instruments on steel wire moorings, which means that moorings can be wound on and off winches more quickly, thus saving time and money as well as improving safety. The system incorporates a simple but robust locking mechanism operated by one hand using a convenient, large push button release. The only preparation required is the fitting of small swage lock...

International Hydrographic & Oceanographic Industry 2003

We Visited for You
The Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) is one of the famous landmarks of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was the venue for the International Hydrographic & Oceanographic Industry 2003: Conference & Exhi-bition (IHOCE'03) held from 8th to 10th July 2003. Despite the region being affected by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), this event was still considered a success in terms of the number of attendees, speakers and exhibitors participating. The IHOCE'03 was the first of such events held in the Southeast Asia region to combine both the hydrographic and oceanographic fields in one meeting. The conference started with a memorable...

Future Requirements for Oceanographic Instrumentation

Richard Burt, Sales & Marketing Director, Chelsea Technologies Group addressed the Fifth Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) Global Conference on Oceans, Coasts and Islands on the future of oceanographic sensors and technology and shared his vision of future developments. In a session to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the IOC, Richard outlined that oceanographic instrumentation has traditionally been developed within academic centres of excellence in order to provide answers to challenging scientific questions. There are many examples of industry working with scientists to commercialise these technologies and make them available on a global scale.Richard went on to say that environmental sensors...

Physical Oceanographic Real-time System

Real-time Data Improve Safety, Spur the Economy and Benefit the Environment
Physical Oceanographic Real-Time System (PORTS) is a growing programme providing a range of navigation safety, economic and natural resource protection benefits. The programme is managed by the National Ocean Service (NOS), part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The NOS are responsible for providing oceanographic data and other navigation products in order to promote safe and efficient navigation within US waters. Here we discuss the proven benefits of PORTS and elements required to ensure delivery of high-quality real-time data.<P> View Larger Map Since maritime commerce has tripled in the last 50 years in US waters, there is a growing...

Marine & Oceanographic Technology Network (MOTN)

The Marine & Oceanographic Technology Network is a nine-year old regional, non-profit association of marine and oceanographic companies and organisations located throughout the New England area. The overall objectives of MOTN are twofold. First, it seeks to improve the financial bottom line of its commercial member companies. At the same time, it strives to develop strong strategic ties between industry, academia and government. MOTN encourages shared R&D activities and fosters partnership opportunities between commercial organisations, research institutions and state and federal government agencies. The Marine and Oceanographic Technology Network (MOTN) started out as a Massachusetts-Only organisation that expanded to include... (read more)

Connecting Paleo and Modern Oceanographic Data

to Understand AMOC over Decades to Centuries
The organisers aim to combine the expertise of both the modern and paleoceanographic communities to explore the state of knowledge of AMOC over a range of timescales. A main goal will be to identify promising, potentially synergistic research directions to improve our understanding of AMOC and its relationship to climate variability. Major challenges we will focus on are: understanding decadal to century scale variations of the AMOC, variations on these timescales during recent millennia, the history of AMOC changes during the Holocene, the mechanisms driving AMOC variability and changes, and the global and regional scale AMOC impacts. We hope to spark... (read more)
