Falmounth Scientific Announces Current Meter Training in India

Falmouth Scientific, Inc. (FSI) of Cataumet (MA, USA) have recently announced that it has completed training for the Indian Navy in operation and maintenance of its 2D-ACM current meter systems. Over 30 Navy personnel from five vessels attended the 3-day training course, which was conducted by Fred Hegg of FSI at the National Hydrographic Survey facility in Visakhapatnam. FSI supplied fourteen of the 2D-ACM current meters with conductivity, temperature, and depth (CTD) modules to the Indian Navy in February of this year. The current meters use acoustic phase-shift transit-time technology to measure a 2-dimensional point-velocity. When instrumented with CTD modules,... (read more)

Salinometer Delivery

RBR has delivered a MS-310 micro-salinometer to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Hobart, Australia via its agent Metocean Services International. Precision measurement of ocean physics is critical to understanding how the coastal marine environment or deep ocean is changing over short, medium or longer-term time-scales. Any inaccuracies in measurement impact the scientific outcomes and therefore accurate calibration is critical. The MS-310 joins the other equipment at the extensive calibration facility at CSIRO, where they not only calibrate their own oceanographic instrumentation, but offer the service for a range of clients including state research agencies, water authorities...

AML Moving Vessel Profiler to Augment NSCC’s Seafloor Mapping Work

A newly acquired AML Moving Vessel Profiler (MVP) will help Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) develop improved methods of mapping the seafloor. With its ability to conduct real-time, vertical profiles continuously and automatically, the MVP200 is expected to improve the efficiency and quality of data collection. Looking to add ground-truthing to the process of multibeam data acquisition, AML and NSCC are working together to integrate lights and a high-resolution camera to the tow body that houses the underway profiling system’s sound velocity (SV), conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD), or multiparameter instrumentation. Ground-truthing is a critical step in validating the seafloor characteristics for interpretation of... (read more)
