1997-2007: A Decade of Developments in Hydrography

We all know what is the oldest profession in the world. The second oldest is probably that of land surveyor: Adam undoubtedly wanted to stake out the boundaries of paradise in order to know what was and was not his. Paradise, or the Garden of Eden, was to be found in the land of the Euphrates and Tigris, where these two rivers converge at the town of Qurna in the present Shatt al Arab. And apart from his topographical activities Adam must also have made some hydrographic observations, probably just using a stick cut from a local fruit tree! After... (read more)

Ice Navigation and the ­Electronic Age

Still No Perfect Electronic Solution to the Challenges of Ice Navigation
Ice navigation is more of an art than a science, and like most arts, does not fit neatly into any scheme for enhancement by electronic means. It is an art learned in theory at navigation school, and perfected by many years of practical experience in forcing ships though ice. The successful ice-navigator is living proof that the human brain processes data faster, and with more accurate results for correct decision-making, than any computer currently in service. Thus, it becomes clear that electronic assistance to the process will consist mainly of the provision of tools, which will not only make the... (read more)

Ocean Survey - The World Market

Over the past thirteen years Douglas-Westwood Limited has produced a series of occasional techno-economic studies of the Ocean Survey industry. This latest, The World Ocean Survey Report 2004-2008 aims to review the most significant recent developments, value markets and provide a forecast for the period 2004 to 2008. In practice, it is very difficult to precisely define the boundaries of the subject of ocean survey as for example some definitions may include survey of the major navigable waterways. Furthermore, commercial survey & positioning (S&P) contractors’ activities range into other areas, including the operation of assets in non-survey tasks, such as... (read more)

Surveying and Charting

Hydro International Interviews Rear Admiral (R) Andres Roque Di Vincenzo
Surveying, charting and monitoring a complex and vast area which includes features from rivers, waterways, a long Atlantic coast to the Antarctic Peninsula environment, is a very challenging task. Only a well-equipped Governmental Hydrographic Institution can cope with it. The Servicio de Hidrografia Naval (SHN) of the Republic of Argentina, continuously produces the nautical information needed by sailors and the scientific world. In doing this, SHN benefits from its membership of the International Hydrographic Organization and of the Organisation of the Antarctic Treaty. Rear Admiral Di Vincenzo, who has headed the SHN for the past four years, explains how they... (read more)

Hydrography for Exploration

Interview with Roger Lott, Head of Survey for BP Exploration, London, UK
In the last half century Hydrography has grown from a Government commitment, solely for the purpose of producing nautical charts and information for safe navigation, into a science indispensable to all sorts of offshore industrial activities. One such activity is offshore Oil and Gas exploration and exploitation. It is well known that this offshore industry has given birth to many fascinating technical developments in hydrography. Roger Lott, Head of Survey for BP Exploration based in London, agreed to be interviewed by Hydro international to inform the readers concerning specific items in offshore surveying for this industry. Can you give the... (read more)

Prince Albert II, Sovereign Prince of Monaco since April 2005, continues the tradition of his predecessors. Since 2001, Prince Albert is also president of the International Commission for the Scientific Exploration of the Mediterranean. He kindly accepted to be interviewed by Hydro international.
