Geo-engineering and Sea-level Rise over the 21st Century

Scientific findings by international research group of scientists from England, China and Denmark just published suggest that sea level will likely be 30-70 centimetres higher by 2100 than at the start of the century even if all but the most aggressive geo-engineering schemes are undertaken to mitigate the effects of global warming and greenhouse gas emissions are stringently controlled. Most scientists agree that anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions contribute greatly to global warming, and that these emissions need to be controlled if damaging future impacts such as sea-level rise are to be averted.Scientists have proposed ways of ‘geo-engineering' the Earth system...

Shallow Inland Water Bathymetry Meets IHO S-44 Special Order

Application of the Kongsberg GeoSwath System
For many years, the GeoSwath system from Kongsberg GeoAcoustics has been providing an efficient simultaneous swath bathymetry and sidescan seabed mapping solution with accuracies that meet the IHO S-44 Special Order standard for hydrographic surveys. GeoSwath systems have been fitted to a number of small crafts and have been utilised to conduct bathymetric surveys of lakes, ponds, dams and rivers. This article describes two of the vessels that have been employed to undertake this area of work. The use of Unmanned Surface Vessel (USVs) allows surveying in locations and situations in which deployment of conventional platforms is not practical or... (read more)
