Turbulence Investigation Commences in China

As awareness of the role that turbulence microstructure plays in the transfer of mass, momentum, salt and other water properties from large to small scales dissipation by molecular process, and with the aim of improving understanding of interactions with biology as well as its major role within the global climate change, scientists in China have become increasingly interested in measuring ocean turbulence microstructures. Prof. Tian from the Ocean University of China began his research project last year and has since finished his first measurements in the western Pacific using a free fall microstructure profiler, TurboMAP, produced by Alec electronics. Co.,... (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)

LOPC Order from Dalhousie University

ODIM Brooke Ocean has received an order for the delivery of an ODIM LOPC to the Biology Department of Dalhousie University. The ODIM LOPC will be used by Dr. Tamara Romanuk for measuring detailed size and shape outlines of zooplankton thereby allowing for the compositional structure of communities to be determined. It will be used for both preserved and live plankton samples.   The resolution was specified to be 40 microns with an average operating profile of 100 microns up to ~5mm (or lower resolution). The ODIM LOPC being delivered will function in a laboratory environment for use with a... (read more)

Falcon for Icebreakers

Two newly designed Russian icebreakers are sharing a Saab Seaeye Falcon ROV for pipeline operations in the Barents Sea. Housed in a dedicated control container, the Falcon is passed between the ships as they undertake pipeline survey and inspection work, along with diving support tasks. The specially designed container was created and manufactured by Tetis Pro, Saab Seaeye's Russian distributor.   The two new diesel-electric icebreakers, St Petersburg and Moscow, are built to an advanced hull design that improves seaworthiness in hostile sea-states and needs less power input during icebreaking operations.   The Falcon's ability to work in demanding conditions...

Water Quality Data Buoy Order

AXYS wil supply of two WatchMate data collection buoys to the University of Southern California. The solar and battery powered WatchMate's are each configured with two WETLabs Water Quality Monitors, all-in-one instruments that measure salinity, temperature, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll and turbidity.   The buoys will provide USC's public health and water quality officials in Southern California with a better picture of water quality along the Pacific Coast. The project is led by Burt Jones, a research associate professor in the USC Marine Environmental Biology program, and it covers much of the shoreline of Los Angeles and Orange counties.
