Taking your University to Work

Hydrographic Academy with Plymouth University
Solving issues with the future supply of hydrographic surveyors, the retention of existing staff, and the limited number of surveyors working within the industry who are formally qualified and professionally accredited to do their job requires training and education. The Hydrographic Academy takes studying with Plymouth University offshore. The offshore industry is facing an increasing threat to its success. Despite a relentless advance in technology and a globally buoyant market place, there are insufficient hydrographic surveyors being supplied from universities to satisfy demand. Historically, surveyors entered the industry once they had completed training and service in the Navy or had... (read more)

Societies

  Australasian Hydrographic Society   AHS Forum A forum page has been established on the AHS website to encourage members to discuss important issues and hopefully bridge the gap between members in distant or remote locations where meetings are impossible. The forum web page is at weblink 1.   AHS Education Page An education tab has been added to the AHS web page. The pages seek to encourage young people interested in hydrographic surveying as a career, as well as assist those seeking to gain certification. Links to the Surveying & Mapping Industry Council of NSW (SMIC NSW) and the Institution... (read more)

New Book: ‘GNSS Survey & Engineering’

Geomares Education introduces a new book, called ‘GNSS Survey & Engineering’, written by Huibert-Jan Lekkerkerk. 'GNSS Survey & Engineering' is aimed at providing the everyday professional GPS user with enough background information for the understanding and correct operation of satellite navigation equipment in general and particularly GPS. The new book is based on the lectures the author has written for the Skilltrade course in hydrographic surveying as well as a series of articles on satellite navigation systems. Today, GPS is almost synonymous with simple navigation and positioning in nearly all sectors. There are many brands and models to choose from... (read more)

Marine Insititutes Co-operate to Improve Ocean Knowledge

Hydro International interviews Peter Harris
The full feature is online at http://member.hydro-international.com/. Please subscribe for free using the Subscribe button in the left hand column. Peter Harris outlines how hydrography contributes to marine science. Seafloor mapping forms the basis for almost all marine research programmes. Mapping of the seafloor assists science in designing a seafloor sampling programme, understanding processes like sediment transport and tectonics and in identifying benthic habitats. The education of hydrographic technologies should therefore also play a larger role within scientific education. As a marine expert, Peter Harris has worked with a multi-disciplinary team to design Australia’s national representative system of marine protected... (read more)
