Broadband Acoustic Turbulence and Biology Mapping Instrument for Ocean Research

EdgeTech has delivered a Wideband Acoustic Mapping System (WAMS) to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). The system provides for monitoring acoustic scattering from zooplankton, bubbles and turbulence in the ocean with a frequency range of 120kHz to 600kHz, in 4 overlapping bands. The system is built on EdgeTech's Full Spectrum chirp technology, and provides for very accurate, wideband, amplitude and phase weighted transmissions, combined with very low noise, high dynamic range and coherent digitizing receivers. The data are available as both de-chirped, complex valued time series and raw 16 bit data samples. The echo spectrum and echo positions are all... (read more)

University of Iceland chooses Gavia AUV

The University of Iceland, Institute of Biology have purchased a 500m rated Gavia AUV. The Institute of Biology will utilise their Gavia AUV primarily for scientific research into seafloor morphology, water quality, benthic habitat monitoring, and for estimating density of commercially important benthic species such as crabs and mollusks as well as hydrographic surveys.   In addition to the many projects planned in Icelandic waters later this year, the University of Iceland plans to use their Gavia later this year in Norway and in the Faeroe Islands with the objectives of benthic habitat monitoring and evaluation of the influence of...

East Carolina University Orders LOPC

ODIM Brooke Ocean has received an order for the delivery of an ODIM LOPC to the Department of Biology, Institute for Coastal Science and Policy East Carolina University. The LOPC will be used by Dave Kimmel, Assistant Professor at the Institute for Coastal Science and Policy’s Biology Department, for high spatial and temporal resolution in the study of zooplankton distribution in coastal and estuarine waters. The ODIM LOPCTM is the next generation in plankton profiling. The LOPC’s high-speed processing and improved detection plane provides detection counts at higher resolutions and higher concentrations with lower coincidence. The system can be installed...

Opening and Open House of Maritime Knowledge Centre

Seafoundation will open its Maritime Knowledge Centre for sub-sea and sub-ocean studies Seabase in Kamperland (The Netherlands). Seabase is independent and is founded after the Annual Programme of National Park Oosterschelde appeared to ignore water-aspects of nature monitoring. Activities of the organisation are sea survey (with own vessels and laboratory), education and the management of the reception hall. Sea Knowledge combines hydrography, maritime biology, oceanography, construction and aquatic ecotechnology. The opening of the centre is accompanied by a survey with the vessel Sezanne on the Grevelingen. On 6th January 2007 from 13.00, during an open house of the institute, the... (read more)

New Polar Research Ship to be Built in UK

The UK Marine Industries Alliance has welcomed the government’s announcement that the preferred bidder to build a GBP200 million polar research ship is a UK company. The successful bidder, Cammell Laird from Birkenhead, emerged from a strong international competition. The new polar research ship, which will operate in both Antarctica and the Arctic, will be able to endure up to 60 days in sea-ice to enable scientists to gather more observations and data. The ship will be the first British-built polar research vessel with a heli-deck to open up new locations for science and will be one of the most... (read more)
