CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA) has been awarded a contract from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) for the analysis of all visual and acoustic mitigation survey data collected during seismic operations in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) from 2009 through 2015. These data will be combined with the first 6 years (2002-2008) of data analysis, also completed by CSA staff in 2012, and the resulting dataset will be the largest and most comprehensive analysis of U.S. seismic mitigation data and the largest dataset globally collected under standardized regulations. This study plays an integral part in science-based policy-making and risk assessment for future geophysical mitigation requirements and impact assessment. The availability of such data in a peer-reviewed format is necessary to support these environmental impact documents as they must meet best available science criteria.
CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA) senior scientist David Snyder and George Burgess, coordinator of museum operations and the director of the Florida Program for Shark Research at the University of Florida’s Florida Museum of Natural History, have authored the most comprehensive book about Florida’s marine fishes ever produced. Titled Marine Fishes of Florida, it includes hundreds of photographs and species you’ll encounter—plus many that are rare—when diving, snorkeling, kayaking, or fishing. Coverage includes both the Atlantic and Gulf coastline, from habitats near the shore to deeper waters. Fishes found in coastal rivers and other brackish waters are fully represented as are offshore species that venture into Florida’s waters often enough to be called “occasional visitors.”
CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA), along with team members Oasis and TNO, has been awarded a contract from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) for the project entitled, “A Parametric Analysis and Sensitivity Study of the Acoustic Propagation for Renewable Energy Sources and Projects” (PASS). The main objective of the PASS study is to standardize modeling approaches for sound propagation from activities associated with offshore renewable energy development for the Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf. More specifically, the project’s aim is three fold: 1) characterize the sensitivity of the sound field to known variability in propagation conditions for wind farm installation activities, including but not limited to pile driving; 2) improve understanding of shallow water propagation characteristics and the sound field caused by pile driving and related activities; and 3) provide a harmonized methodology for estimating the volume of ocean impacted from each activity.
Remote island markets in the South and Central Pacific are being connected to the global submarine cable network at an increasing pace. This paper looks at the reasons behind this development and what the future holds.
Submarine Cable World Daily Newsfeed has updated its list of new submarine cables announced in 2016. Tracking new systems provides insight into the level of level of optimism in the industry for the need for new cables and the ability to raise money to build them.
