Pelydryn Buys CHIROPTERA II for Shallow Water Survey

Pelydryn, UK, has bought the CHIROPTERA II topo-bathy Lidar system from Airborne Hydrography and Leica Geosystems. Introduced in early March 2014, CHIROPTERA II is a Lidar system which simultaneously captures the full waveform in both the 35kHz bathymetric channel and the 500kHz topographic channel. The system targets the growing need for high-resolution accurate topographic and bathymetric surveys in the coastal zone and other shallow water regions, achieving depths of up to 15 metres. In the Chiroptera system, the Lidar data from land is recorded and stored separately from the bathymetry data. The Chiroptera uses two Lidars, one red laser for... (read more)

BC Hydro Uses New Shallow Water Ice Profiler

ASL has introduced a new, smaller and more cost effective version of the Ice Profiler product for use in rivers and lakes at depths up to 10 metres. This new product, the Shallow Water Ice Profiler (SWIP), provides real time output and, because it is intended for shallow water applications, does not require a pressure housing. In addition, all but essential components have been moved to a shore panel, thus minimising replacement costs if the underwater unit is lost to ice. BC Hydro of Burnaby, BC Canada, is using the SWIP on the Peace River where they own and operate... (read more)

Shallow Survey 2003

We Visited for You
Following her increased interest for the Australasian region, Hydro international visited the Shallow Survey 2003 Conference, held from 17th to 20th November 2003 in Sydney, Australlia. Over two hundred hydrographic specialists and people in one or other way involved in hydrography gathered together to listen to papers on aspects specific to hydrographic surveying in shallow to very shallow waters. It was the Third International Conference on high-resolution surveys in shallow water, which itself proved the value and specific interest of this type of conference. The first Shallow Survey Conference was held in Sydney in 1999, followed by a second in... (read more)

Shallow Survey 2003

Interview with Dr Phil Chapple, Scientist, Conference Convenor, Australia
After completing a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Physics in 1983, Dr Phil Chapple worked in a laboratory of the Australian Defence Science & Technology Organisation (DSTO) where lasers were being developed for Australia’s Laser Airborne Depth Sounder (LADS). He returned to university to study for a PhD in Physics (laser spectroscopy), returned again to DSTO to investigate laser-material interactions and later worked some years on statistical image processing techniques. He completed the degree of Master of Mathematical Sciences (Signal & Information Processing), meanwhile learning details of sonar signal processing. In 1999 he moved to the DSTO Maritime Operations... (read more)

Shallow Survey 2012

More than 200 hydrographic and marine charting experts and other scientists met during the International Shallow Survey Conference held from 20 to 24 February 2012 in Wellington, New Zealand. The conference was hosted by LINZ, NIWA and GNS Science. In addition to the conference’s key session on the common dataset, the event comprised five days of workshops, keynote speeches and expert presentations as well as a trade show. Plenty of networking took place at the Monday evening icebreaker, at the official conference dinner held at Te Wharewaka o Poneke, and also over coffee in Wellington’s many excellent cafés. After the... (read more)

Shallow Hazards Survey Completed

Fugro GeoServices has successfully completed the fieldwork portion of a shallow hazards survey in Alaska’s Chukchi Sea for Shell Exploration and Production. Data processing is currently underway, with the first set of interpretation and reporting deliverables scheduled for month’s end. Additional follow-on work is expected to continue into the new year. Fugro accomplished the surveys over a period of two months. Acquisition involved specialized equipment customized for the arctic environment and to meet Alaska outer continental shelf permitting requirements, as published by the federal Minerals Management Service agency.     (read more)

M3 Bathy Shallow Water Multibeam Approved to IHO S-44 Standard

Kongsberg Mesotech’s M3 Bathy System, a survey system for shallow-water bathymetric applications, is officially designated compliant with IHO S-44. During the testing, which took place in February 2014, bathymetry data from the M3 was collected in depths ranging from 15-40m. The test targets were a series of standard concrete 1m cubes laid along 20m and 40m contours. The results confirmed that the M3 Bathy is capable of achieving bathymetric survey data that meets two orders of IHO standards. The IHO compliance consists of various criteria including vertical accuracy and target detection standards. In order to assess IHO-S44 compliance, these criteria... (read more)
