    ECHOSOUNDERS VERSUS AIR BUBBLES IN RESEARCH VESSELS

    by wade on March 15, 2014

    (HYDRO INTERNATIONAL: 28/02/2014) It is widely recognised that air bubbles may have a negative effect on echosounding systems. Klaus von Bröckel from GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in Kiel, Germany, has written an article about dealing with air bubbles from sweep-down and cavitation processes and outlining experiences with the last three large research vessels (RVs Polarstern, Meteor and Maria S. Merian). The practical experience resulted in the development of an optimised new hull form for the replacement of RV Sonne. Read more.

    EXTREME WEATHER - THE ARCTIC CONNECTION

    by wade on February 3, 2014
