Water-Tight Cases

B&D have unveiled their latest range of water-tight cases. The Zarges K470 aluminium container has been re-developed to Ingress Protection (IP) 65 protecting its contents against the penetration of liquids and dust. Zarges' engineers developed the cases with TÜV formally certifying the range. The new models include additionally applied internal sealing, an automatic membrane relief valve, improved lid and location stability. Aluminium cases combine light-weight ease of manoeuvre with unrivalled strength and impact resistance. Effectiveness in protecting against water penetration joins the containers' robust protection against extreme fluctuations in temperature from -150 to +150°C. (read more)

Deep-water Research Centre

Schlumberger has signed a joint cooperation agreement with the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) to build an international research centre on the university's campus. The agreement marks the first research and geosciences center to be located at UFRJ Technology Park. The partners will focus on research and development activities in the deep-water pre-salt environment.     The emphasis will be placed on the development of geosciences software for the exploration and production sector; new technologies to meet reservoir challenges in pre-salt environments; and the creation of a geophysical processing and interpretation Center of Excellence covering time-lapse seismic and...

Water Column Logging Routine

HYPACK, USA, has presented its new HYSWEEP Water Column Logging Routine. The HYSWEEP Water Column Logger is an application that collects and logs the enormous amounts of water-column data provided by modern multibeam sonar. The HYSWEEP Water Column Logger will allow users to ensure that hard targets, such as wrecks, are fully detected, and to confirm the least depth in the water when fine features such wires or masts may be missed otherwise. This data is also useful for evaluating underwater gas seeps and remotely monitoring undersea oil spills. Some key features: The Water Column Display provides constant updates allowing... (read more)

Multibeam Water Column Imaging

Kongsberg Maritime’s new multi-beam echo sounder, EM 3002, extends the functionality of multi-beam echo sounders to cover 3D imaging of biomass and other acoustic reflectors that might be present in the water column. 160 acoustic beams are sampled digitally with a spatial resolution of 15cm for each ping, creating a digital image of a slice of the water mass under the transducer. When the ship is sailing forward, a 3D description can be obtained by combining the images from several pings. The raw display image is available as part of the operator interface. An option to the SIS operating software... (read more)

GEBCO and Deep Water

Data Assembler, Converter, Interpreter and Disseminator
GEBCO uses deepwater survey data to produce bathymetry maps and grids. Published maps appear complete but are in fact based on very little data. Only a portion of the deep data that could potentially be put to use is contributed to the public domain. All would benefit were more data submitted to data centres. BackgroundWhile the general public thinks that all the seafloor has been mapped and many hydrographers and ocean scientists accept published maps and datasets as faithful representations of the deep-sea floor, in reality only a small percentage of the seafloor has ever been directly measured; estimates range...

Water Column Imaging Integration

CARIS' HIPS and SIPS is to integrate water column imaging. Version of HIPS and SIPS 7.1.1, scheduled for release in January 2012, allows differences in the water column data to be made visible for increased productivity.   With water column data, users will be able to extract more qualitative sonar information to reduce the number of run lines and save time and money in survey operations. HIPS and SIPS 7.1.1 allows analysis of water column data directly in 3D and 2D, and without the need for any additional software.   Water column information can be controlled through functions that have...

Seizing Energy from Water

Best-kept Dutch Secret
At least 10% of the Dutch electricity demand can be met from water, according to the Inspiration Atlas ‘Water as a source of renewable energy’. This is not widely known. In fact, this form of energy generation is one of the best-kept secrets in The Netherlands. The Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat) and Deltares are trying within the Rijkswaterstaat Water Innovation programme to show both government and industry the different options and offer them the opportunities to put their innovative solutions into practice.
