Case Study: Wave Monitoring for Darwin Harbour

The Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) successfully installed a Wave Monitoring System at the entrance to Darwin Harbour. The Wave Monitoring System was comprised of a Teledyne RDI Workhorse Sentinel Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) operating at 600kHz and equipped with NEMO waves. The ADCP was bottom mounted and a Teledyne Benthos ATM916 acoustic modem was used to communicate ADCP data through water to a topside NextG modem that transmitted data to the AIMS website for display…

 

Case Study: GPS Integration into RiverRay

Many users prefer to integrate a GPS into RiverRay for difficult conditions such as moving beds. The RiverRay is fully DGPS compatible and supports integration of a large number of OEM GPS units. The advantage of this approach is that customers can integrate a GPS unit that they already have in their inventory – there is no requirement to include a dedicated GPS in the RiverRay that may not be used for many applications. This reduces cost of ownership…

 

Case Study: Darwin Pile Driving

BlueZone provided leading environmental services consultant PGM Environment with engineering services support for studies associated with underwater noise risk mitigation measures for development work in Darwin Harbour. This centred upon pile driving required to install ship facilities and navigation markers. It was understood that certain iconic marine fauna within Darwin Harbour, notably various species of dolphins, as well as dugongs and turtles, were suspected of being sensitive to the noise from marine piling works…

 

Case Study: Sediment Transport in Singapore Harbour

During dredging operations in Singapore Harbour there was a need to closely monitor the sediment transport in real time to avoid impact on designated areas. Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) from Teledyne RD Instruments were the logical choice to measure water currents and twenty instruments were deployed to provide for measurement at key locations ….
