NOPP Project for GODAE

The National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP), a collaboration of fifteen federal agencies, has funded the first of two projects provided as a US contribution to the international Global Ocean Data Experiment (GODAE). The project, 'Global Ocean Prediction with the Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model', will be led by Dr Eric P. Chassignet of the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at the University of Miami. Chassignet's project is the first of two awards planned to demonstrate the utility of near-time ocean data for such areas as marine transportation and safety, fisheries management, navy applications, management of offshore and coastal areas,...

BDHA for Windows

PCAL Technology Ltd has released ‘BDHA for Windows’ software, which provides Quality Control and modelling functionality for Swathe Bathymetry XYZ data. BDHA (Bathymetry Data Handling and Analysis) for Windows enables multiple XYZ datafiles to be analysed simultaneously to provide an independent and objective assessment of the consistency of the acquired data. The software is a tool for client representatives to check the quality and accuracy of swathe bathymetry during a hydrographic survey. Statistical parameters such as coverage, density of soundings, mean, minimum and maximum depth and standard deviation are calculated automatically and can be displayed in the main viewer window...

dKart Hydrographer 2.1

HydroService AS has released newly developed post-processing software, dKart Hydrographer 2.1. This new tool extends the dKArt Office suite of tools that already includes software for synchronised production and maintenance of all nautical chart products, S-57/ENC and paper-based. The new software provides advanced functionality for processing single- and multi-beam survey data, solving all the necessary hydrographic tasks (errors detection and elimination, data thinning, 3D sea bottom modelling, depth contours generation, manual data editing and S-57/ENC creation from processed/raw data, etc.). The new software is capable of working with small, medium and large amounts of data; the system supports a variety... (read more)

Ocean Numerics Partners with CLS

Ocean Numerics has announced a partnership agreement with CLS (Collecte Localisation Satellites). CLS was established in 1986 as a subsidiary of CNES (the French Space Agency) and IFREMER (the French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea). This partnership will greatly enhance capabilities for Ocean Numerics; in particular, CLS expertise in satellite altimetry will be an important component in the advanced systems used for assimilating data into Ocean Numerics ocean circulation models. CLS operates satellite-based location, data collection and Earth observation systems. The company is well known for the ARGOS system, which it operates and promotes. It also operates the...
