A Location Strategy for Funding Port Infrastructure

A Location Strategy for Funding Port Infrastructure

“When you've been to one port, you've been to one port.” So goes a saying exemplifying the understanding among the maritime community that every port is inherently unique. Each port has an exceptional identity and, likewise, an exceptional way in which its problems must be presented, addressed and solved.

Melting Sea Ice: A Canary in the Coal Mine

Melting Sea Ice: A Canary in the Coal Mine

The rapid loss of Arctic sea ice is a sentinel. Most of us will never venture into the Arctic, but it can and does provide us with a forewarning of impacts coming to our parts of the Earth – and some of the most significant impacts will directly affect the maritime industry.   In earlier times, coal miners were sometimes overcome by the buildup of odorless carbon monoxide gas.

Meyer Werft Lays Keel of Norwegian Bliss

A keel laying ceremony was held for Norwegian Cruise Line’s (NCL) new cruise ship Norwegian Bliss at the shipbuilder Meyer Werft’s facility in Papenburg, Germany.   During the ceremony, one of the keel blocks of the 167,800 gross ton vessel was lifted into the covered building hall, signifying a major milestone in the ship’s construction.

A Time to Build & Refit

A Time to Build & Refit

The aging Pacific Northwest fishing fleet is either undergoing or about to undergo a long-overdo upgrade, judging by a major economic report commissioned by the Port of Seattle. Fisheries managers, seafood suppliers, yards and the supply chain all hope an accompanying surge in ship finance “lifts all boats”.

Case Study: Mapping a Glacial Landslide

Remote Area Survey with the Z-Boat 1800RP   Products: Z-Boat 1800RP Application: Remote Area Survey Project: Taan Fiord Landslide Assessment Customer: University of Washington Tacoma, Dr. Dan Shugar   In October of 2015, a massive landslide was detected at Tyndall glacier in southeast Alaska, sending an estimated 145 million tons of valley wall into Taan Fiord.

AUV Mission in the Great Lakes

AUV Mission in the Great Lakes

A recent first-of-its-kind mission to the Great Lakes included the deployment of a long-range autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) to help scientists better understand one of the world’s largest and most complex freshwater environments.   The five Great Lakes (Erie, Huron, Michigan, Ontario and Superior) were carved out by glaciers thousands of years ago and today stretch across an expansive 246

Methane: The Arctic's Buried Treasure

Methane: The Arctic's Buried Treasure

In pursuit for the Arctic’s buried treasure: methane   Trapped beneath permafrost and ocean sediments, the release of the world’s largest natural gas resource, methane, has become a hot topic for international research. As rising temperatures continue to warm the Arctic region, the vast frozen fields of gas, known as gas hydrates, grow unstable beneath the retreating ice.

Expedition to Study Ocean’s Role in Glacial Melting

Expedition to Study Ocean’s Role in Glacial Melting

Australian scientists are stepping up efforts to understand how the Southern Ocean is changing and how these changes are likely to affect the East Antarctic ice sheet.   A team of around 30 scientists, technicians and PhD students from CSIRO, the Antarctic Climate & Ecosystems CRC (ACE CRC), the University of Tasmania’s Institute for Marine & Antarctic Studies

Polar Sea Ice the Size of India Vanishes in Record Heat

Polar Sea Ice the Size of India Vanishes in Record Heat

Sea ice off Antarctica and in the Arctic is at record lows for this time of year after declining by twice the size of Alaska in a sign of rising global temperatures, climate scientists say.   Against a trend of global warming and a steady retreat of ice at earth's northern tip, ice floating on the Southern Ocean off Antarctica has tended to expand in recent years.

Arctic Nature's Clock has Gone Haywire

Arctic Nature's Clock has Gone Haywire

Nature’s clock is running fast in the Arctic, thanks to climate change. Some plants in the low Arctic of Greenland are emerging sooner than usual.    Due to diminishing sea ice cover, spring is coming sooner to some plant species in the low Arctic of Greenland, while other species are delaying their emergence amid warming winters, says a study.

Vast Iceberg Poised to Crack off Antarctica

Vast Iceberg Poised to Crack off Antarctica

A vast iceberg, expected to be one of the biggest ever recorded with an area almost the size of the U.S. state of Delaware or the Caribbean island state of Trinidad and Tobago, is poised to break off Antarctica. A rift, slowly developing across the Larsen C ice shelf on the Antarctic Peninsula in recent years, expanded abruptly last month, growing by about 18 km (11 miles).
