'As it Is'

In 1943, given the need to further hydrography in Spain, the hydrographic service was detached from the Observatorio de la Armada, and the Instituto Hidrográfico de la Marina was born by law. It is sited in Cádiz and as an organisation under Navy Staff promotes cartography and achieves wider action in all functions related to hydrography and navigation. Its historic roots date back to the sixteenth-century Casa de Contratación at Seville. In 1970 the Instituto Hidrográfico de la Marina was reorganised and updated, with the task of 'Ensuring the safety of navigation regarding the capture and dissemination of information on...

IHO Capacity Building Update

Capacity Building (CB) is one of the strategic objectives of the IHO. It aims to assist countries, especially IHO Member States, in better meeting their international obligations in hydrographic surveying, nautical charting and maritime safety information. This is done through identifying the needs in each region and countries, providing technical advisory visits, and the provision of workshops, seminars, training and education programmes held around the world. Funding comes from the IHO Member States’ annual contributions with significant additional funding from the Republic of Korea and the Nippon Foundation of Japan.

Earth Sciences and the Aquaculture Industry

The fast development of the aquaculture industry in Chile over the last decade has meant several undesirable effects on the environment and territorial organisation. This industry is producing revenues of over US$ 1,000 million per year and has transformed the economy of three of the largest regions in the country, from latitude 40° S. to the surroundings of Cape Horn. It is difficult to find unemployed people in this region. The country has become the second largest salmon producer in the world, preceded only by Norway. Several unpredicted effects of this industry have had an impact upon the environment due... (read more)
