1500 – 1600 - Unlocking the power of X-Band as a coastal development and management tool
Shore-based marine radar systems have recently proved to be an excellent tool for gathering a wealth of hydrographic, hydrodynamic and environmental data for a variety of scientific and industrial applications. Following significant research and development effort at The NOC and other partner institutions in the UK and further afield, a single marine radar sensor can gather information on; subtidal bathymetry down to 30-50 m, near-surface currents, intertidal topography, wave spectra and wave statistics. Along with this crucial hydrographic data, the radar can provide information on bird and marine mammal activity in the area while continuing to act as a vessel traffic observation and management tool. This session will provide an overview of the capabilities and services provided by The NOC and Marlan Maritime Technologies.
