Marine Mapping for the North Sea

SeaZone is leading the Bringing Land and Sea Together (BLAST) Work Package 3 - The Marine and Coastal Reference Base. This Working Group addresses the needs of marine spatial planning, environmental protection, socio-economic development, risk management and mitigation, by delivering harmonised land and sea geographic datasets. This specific project is part of the BLAST project which contributes to the ‘The North Sea Regional Programme 2007 - 2013' (INTERREG IVB) led by Christian Byrith. SeaZone's main purpose of the project is for the development of Marine and Coastal Base Reference Information, or digital base map for the North Sea. There are... (read more)

Multibeam Mapping of Continental Margin Morphology

Bathymetry in understanding oceanic & continental evolution
A jigsaw puzzle of lithospheric plates comprises the outer shell of the earth. Oceanic plates, formed by ascending magma at mid-ocean ridges and transported towards the continents by internal convective forces, collide with continental plates at convergent margins and are subducted beneath them. This is accompanied by violent geological processes such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, submarine landslides and tsunamis. The speed of drift of the plates is in the order of several centimetres per year, too slow to be observed directly. Still, these processes shape the surface of the ocean bottom and submarine morphology records these forces acting on the... (read more)

European Lidar and Mobile Mapping Conference

The European LiDAR Mapping Forum [ELMF10], to be held in The Hague from 30th November to 1st December 2010 is a two-day technical conference focussing on the use of airborne, bathymetric and terrestrial Lidar with a particular focus on mobile mapping to support transport, urban modelling and asset management and GIS applications. Alongside there is an associated international exhibition for system and component manufacturers, operators and service companies. Building on 10 years of experience with the annual International Lidar Mapping Forum (ILMF) in the USA, the organisers are bringing this event to Europe. With its focus on Lidar technology and...

The Norwegian MAREANO Seafloor Mapping Programme

Although the marine resources in Norwegian offshore waters are quite intensively exploited by primarily the petroleum industry and fisheries, the knowledge about seafloor habitats is scarce. Any destructive consequences from e.g. petroleum-related seafloor installations and fishing gears on the benthic environment may therefore in general be challenging to foresee. Factors that might be negatively influenced may include e.g. benthic species diversity, benthic production and bottom substrate. This, and the need for filling the obvious benthic knowledge gaps offshore, was a main driver behind the establishment of the MAREANO programme – Marine Areal Database for Norwegian Waters. The process towards a... (read more)

Remote Intertidal Mapping Technology Enters the Market

Professionals in science and industry will soon be able to map beaches and sandbanks without getting their feet wet. This follows three years of collaborative research resulting in a new commercial licence between National Oceanography Centre (NOC) and Marlan Maritime Technologies to sell new coastal mapping technology. The depth and pattern of sediment on the floor of the intertidal zones changes daily, yet understanding where this sediment resides is vital to being able to manage coastal areas better. For example, knowing how beach sediment movement is influenced by coastal protection measures could help inform how effective they are relative to the... (read more)
