TCarta Global Sat-Derived Bathymetry

TCarta Marine, a global provider of hydrospatial solutions, has introduced a global satellite-derived bathymetry (G-SDB) product line developed with a new seafloor depth measurement technique that leverages machine learning and NASA ICESat-2 laser data. The first G-SDB offering covers the entire Red Sea–available now–with additional data sets to be rolled out through the end of this year. The commercial TCarta

Fugro Part of Remote Sat Seafloor Mapping

Fugro is participating in an EU co-funded research and innovation project to develop a remote solution for global satellite-derived seafloor mapping. The three-year project, named “4S” (Satellite Seafloor Survey Suite), will develop an online cloud-based solution that will use highly automated Earth-observation algorithms and workflows to remotely map and monitor seafloor habitats, morphology and shallow-water bathymetry. Fugro will lead the

Data from Uncharted Waters Provides Key Insights into Glacial Melting Processes

Seabed 2030

New bathymetric and oceanographic data collected by an international team of ocean scientists provide important insights into the processes that are controlling the rapid loss of the Greenland Ice Sheet over the last four decades. The ground-breaking data, published in the Nature Journal Communications Earth & Environment, will be contributed to The Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 Project, which aims to have

New Genus of Giant Single-Celled Organism Found in Deep Pacific

Abyssalia

Two new genera and four new species of giant, single-celled xenophyophores (protozoans belonging to a group called the foraminifera) were discovered in the deep Pacific Ocean during a joint project between scientists at the National Oceanography Centre, U.K. (NOC), the University of Hawaii and the University of Geneva. “Moana” (meaning “the sea”) has inspired the name ‘”Moanammina” for one of the new

Fast-Moving Undersea Waterfalls Control Submarine Channels

NOC waterfalls submarine channels

New research led by the U.K. National Oceanography Centre (NOC) has discovered how fast-moving waterfalls under the sea control the shape and behavior of submarine channels. These underwater channels are the offshore equivalents of rivers, but can be much larger. Submarine channels can extend for tens to thousands of kilometers offshore, providing an important conduit for the transfer of sediment,
