CETO Wave Energy Generator Tested at COAST Facility

Carnegie Wave Energy Limited (Carnegie) has undertaken a comprehensive wave tank testing programme of its CETO 6 technology design at the University of Plymouth’s Coastal, Ocean and Sediment Test (COAST) facility in the UK. CWE UK chief executive officer Tim Sawyer and Carnegie’s senior hydrodynamics engineer Dr Ashkan Rafiee were both on hand as comprehensive testing of the CETO 6 performance across a range of sea states took place.The wave tank testing will build on Carnegie’s internal modelling as well as previous wave tank testing and the successful in-ocean operation of the CETO 5 system in the now completed Perth Wave Energy...

Total and Shell Buy into MACH Dataset

BMT ARGOSS, the Met Office and Oceanweather have launched their joint Mid-Atlantic Current Hindcast (MACH) dataset, resulting in two successful data sales to oil and gas majors, Shell International Petroleum Company and Total. The MACH dataset provides information on the long-term variability of currents over a 20-year period and has been validated against measured data throughout the region. The initial focus has been to provide a 20-year fine-resolution dataset for the West Africa oil and gas concession region. The MACH dataset will be used to better understand the ocean conditions within a potential development site or to gain advanced knowledge... (read more)

First High-resolution Map of the Great Barrier Reef Released

One and a half million square kilometres of bathymetric seafloor data have been released to the public by Geoscience Australia under partnership with James Cook University and the Australian Hydrographic Service of the Great Barrier Reef. The project carried out high-resolution bathymetric scans, which were combined with existing datasets held by the government to create the most comprehensive, detailed models produced to date. The release comes as the federal government announced an AU$60 million investment in protective measures for the Great Barrier Reef, which include measures to shield the Reef from polluted water, and investment in Australian Institute of Marine...

Improved Marine and Weather Forecast

NOAA, USA, is now using enhanced weather and marine forecast models for the Great Lakes that will extend forecasts from 36 hours to 60 hours into the future to better serve commercial and recreational mariners, the shipping industry, emergency responders, water resource managers and the private weather industry. The Great Lakes Operational Forecast System (GLOFS) of NOAA's National Ocean Service, which predict currents, water level and water temperature, is now running on NOAA's National Weather Service's powerful and reliable super computers. The super computers run around the clock, offering a more reliable computing framework to generate Great Lakes forecast models... (read more)

Australian Lidar Bathymetry Survey for Fugro

Fugro has been awarded the contract to conduct an Airborne Lidar Bathymetry (ALB) survey of the Queensland Sunshine Coast (Australia) to be conducted during October and November 2011. The main reason of the survey is to develop a high resolution digital elevation model and other derived products in order to help manage this environmentally and economically important coastal region. The contract has been awarded by Australia's Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information. It will provide data to stakeholder partners including Queensland Government's Department of Environment and Resources Management (DERM), Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency (DCCEE), Commonwealth Scientific and...
