Hydrographic Information Driving Marine Knowledge

Today, as every year on June 21st, the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) celebrates World Hydrography Day. This is an opportunity to raise public awareness of the vital role that hydrography plays in everyone's lives. This year's theme is: 'Hydrographic information, the engine of knowledge of the marine environment’. Wide Range of Activities The Hydrographic Offices of the IHO Member States use a wide range of activities to publicize hydrographic work and services, including: The reminders of the first Hydrographic Conference held in London in 1919 when representatives of 26 countries met at Trinity House in London to discuss and agree...

Will Hydrographic Geospatial Data Pass the Fit-for-purpose Test?

Build a Forward-thinking Marine Community
In 2017, OceanWise outlined the work of the UN-GGIM. The Committee of Experts endorsed the terms of reference for establishing a Working Group on Marine Geospatial Information. Here, Dr Mike Osborne and John Pepper provide a timely update on what has been happening since then. In 2017, OceanWise outlined the work of the UN-GGIM. The Committee of Experts endorsed the terms of reference for establishing a Working Group on Marine Geospatial Information. Here, Dr Mike Osborne and John Pepper provide a timely update on what has been happening since then. The United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM) aims to address global challenges relating to how geospatial information is created, managed and utilized. The UN seeks to overcome these challenges by improving access to fit-for-purpose geospatial information and for it to be an essential enabler on meeting the global community’s Sustainable...

Scientists Identify Almost 2 Million Previously 'Hidden' Earthquakes

Seismologists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the USA's University of California San Diego and colleagues have searched through 10 years' worth of Southern California seismic data with the scientific equivalent of a fine-toothed comb. As a result, they have identified hundreds of thousands of previously unidentified tiny earthquakes that occurred between 2008 and 2017. The study, published last month online in the journal Science, expands the earthquake catalogue for that region and period of time by a factor of 10—growing it from about 180,000 recorded earthquakes to more than 1.8 million. The new data reveals that there are about 495... (read more)

CSA Completes Field Surveys Offshore Puerto Rico

CSA Ocean Sciences (CSA), under a subcontract to Jacobs, has announced the completion of a comprehensive environmental monitoring survey. The survey included physical, biological and chemical field sampling and data collection for 301(h) waiver demonstrations at the Aguadilla, Arecibo and Ponce Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant (RWWTP) outfalls offshore Puerto Rico for the Puerto Rico Aqueduct Authority (PRASA). Since 1999, CSA has been helping to evaluate compliance with receiving water quality standards and describe environmental conditions. Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers During this recent survey, CSA deployed and retrieved acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCPs), a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) water profiler with ancillary sensors...

Optimizing a Low-cost Multi Sensor System for Hydrographic Depth Determination

Surveying devices with lower costs are being welcomed by hobbyists eager to determine water depth. The Department of Geodesy and Geomatics at HafenCity University (HCU) in Hamburg has been working on cost-efficient solutions in recent years. With shallow water surveys not required to be performed with the accuracy and precision of industrial projects, surveying devices with lower costs are being welcomed by hobbyists eager to determine water depth. With this low-cost demand rising, the investigative development of these products has become a scientific research issue. The Department of Geodesy and Geomatics at HafenCity University (HCU) in Hamburg has been working on cost-efficient solutions in recent years.  The Old Openseamap Project During a project with openseamap.org, a Multi Sensor System (MSS) including an Echo sounder, GPS and inertial measurement unit (IMU) was built up and tested.
