Environmental Data Display Software

AXYS Technologies has upgraded their interactive web application used to display environmental data. SmartWeb, previously WebView, is intuitive software used by clients to view their data anytime and anywhere. Views of both current and historical data can be readily displayed and can be imported into Windows spreadsheets and databases for further analysis.  This software upgrade includes features that now allow clients to look at multiple DMS databases for station data to display and graph; view and graph multiple data messages from numerous stations independently and customise the look and feel of the web application to match company colours, logos, etc.SmartWeb...

Environmental Training Course for Dredging

A training course on Environmental Aspects of Dredging is to be held in Delft, The Netherlands, in the spring of this year. Organised by the Postgraduate Academic Programme (PAO) of the Delft University of Technology, it will take place on 19th and 20th April 2012. The Training Course is based on the book Environmental Aspects of Dredging that was produced as a joint effort by the Central Dredging Association (CEDA) and the International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) and published by Taylor and Francis in 2008. The lessons are enhanced by the up-to-date knowledge of the course leaders who are... (read more)

A New Tidal Monitoring System for Port of London Authority
The Port of London Authority (PLA) has had an extensive tide gauge network for many years. However, the existing system, installed in the 1990s was becoming increasingly unreliable providing inconsistent information due to a number of factors. There was a pressing need to develop a state of the art tidal monitoring system across the outer area of the PLA responsibility utilising the latest communications technology whilst ensuring resilience to guarantee 24/7 working of the port could be maintained at all times. OceanWise, working with Valeport, was asked in 2013 to design, build, install and test a new monitoring system to... (read more)

Congo Environmental Survey for Creocean

Creocean has recently successfully completed an Environmental Baseline Survey (EBS) for TOTAL-E&P-Congo on the Moho-Bilondo field. The survey, carried out with scientific support from Thales Geosolutions South Africa and with the technical support of an RV Geoexplorer, provided water quality, sediment and benthic fauna information, at 700 to 900 metre depth. The data collected will describe the environmental sensitivity of the oil field. Creocean scientists use all parameters of the marine environment, including the biological indicators developed specifically for oil and gas areas. (read more)

Valeport Launches Environmental Optical Sensors

Valeport, a British designer and manufacturer of hydrographic and oceanographic instruments, has launched two environmental optical sensors, a standalone turbidity sensor and a fluorometer. The first one of the new range, the Hyperion Turbidity, is the industry’s first standalone turbidity sensor that combines a Nephelometer and OBS readings in the same instrument. Created for inshore, coastal and oceanographic monitoring, this sensor delivers a minimum detection level of just 0.03 NTU (nephelometer) and can measure turbidity up to 6,000 NTU (OBS). The titanium housing, data output up to 16Hz and low power requirements ensure the sensor can be placed in situ for... (read more)

Collaboration on Rapid Environmental Assessment Exercise

A group of marine-industry technology providers gathered recently in San Diego, USA, using OceanServer Technology's Iver2 AUVs as the payload platform, to demonstrate improvements for both sonar and magnetic sensor data capture and subsequent 'in-stride' and post-mission data analysis methods. These methods are emerging through cooperative developments in commercial and military survey operations. Participating for this five-day exercise in the waters off Coronado, were companies including EdgeTech, L-3 Klein, Marine Magnetics and technical representatives from both the US and Canadian Navies. A total of 37 individual AUV missions, simulating battlefield data collection methods, provided a variety of high-resolution imagery and... (read more)

Efficient Marine Navigation through Understanding Environmental Conditions

ARGOSS and WL Delft Hydraulics, together with research and maritime industrial parties in Singapore have started a strategic cooperation to develop satellite altimeter enabled services to improve ocean and coastal current forecasting and to develop a new generation of maritime decision support systems onboard of vessels. The project is coordinated by ARGOSS and will take approximately three years. By improving ocean and coastal current nowcasting and forecasting the newly to be developed services will contribute to safety at sea, fuel efficiency and so help to preserve our environment. ARGOSS is an innovative metocean company developing and providing metocean services based... (read more)

Students Fly Falcon for Environmental Studies

Students get hands-on experience operating a Saab Seaeye Falcon ROV in the Gulf of Maine on the eastern seaboard of the USA where they explore the undersea world and develop their environmental awareness. The project brings students, scientists, teachers and marine professionals together and is run by OceansWide, a non-profit organisation, and is an outreach programme that supports the outreach requirements of the National Science Foundation and other granting agencies. Young people are encouraged to participate in real life scientific research and write reports on their findings. The activities are run both in class and on board OceansWide's research ship...

Monitoring Environmental Concerns in Lake Victoria

UK-based OSIL recently completed the installation of two data buoys along Lake Victoria in Kenya to help manage the local environment. The buoys will be used to monitor various environmental concerns including hyacinth menace and contamination of the lake water. In addition to monitoring atmospheric components of the lake, such as moisture, oxygen levels and temperature, the sensors on the data buoys will also measure wind direction and levels of potentially harmful chemicals in the lake. By better understanding the environment, one benefit is that fishermen will be provided with real-time information on wind patterns, thus helping them to avoid being... (read more)
