The Australasian Hydrographic Society (AHS) is the South West Pacific and South East Asian regional focus for those interested in hydrography and related sciences. The recent and extraordinary progress in oceanology means that the maritime industry and ... Moreundersea exploration will be to this century, that which aviation and aerospace exploration was to the last.

In our region in particular, hydrographic and related information increasingly facilitates the generation, sustainment and transportation of resources. Better hydrographic and geophysical information now allows the responsible development of offshore projects that might have been considered financially untenable a matter of years ago. More accurate information will continue to allow the shipment of resources with greater effectiveness, speed and safety. Of perhaps greater significance is that the quality and quantity of data coming from hydrography and related sciences now allows undersea cabling and pipelines that are more direct, geophysically prudent and environmentally responsible.

Similarly, in the recent past there has been an examination of the security of regional interests, both in the private and public domains. There has been a growing acknowledgment amongst maritime services, such as police, customs and regional navies, that accurate hydrographic data in the littoral environment is fundamental to providing security, protection and humanitarian support.

In this challenging time it is apparent that hydrography and the associated skills that identify and ensure safe passage of shipping, irrespective of flag, are seen as bridging gaps in regional understanding, where few other lines of communication may exist. This is due to hydrography and the like being increasingly acknowledged as egalitarian in purpose and therefore humanitarian in the broadest sense. This is not new, but the extent of acknowledgement is.

The Industrial Rope Access Trade Association International (IRATA) is the sole global trade association in the work-at-height sector. IRATA International's rope access system is a safe method of working at height where ropes and associated equipment ... Moreare used to gain access to and from the work place, and to be supported there.

The primary objective when using rope access methods is to plan, manage and carry out the work with minimal accidents, incidents or dangerous occurrences, i.e. to ensure a safe system of work is maintained at all times, and with no damage to property or harm to the environment. IRATA International has in place a continuously evolving regime of work procedures that members are required to follow and which are monitored for compliance to ensure that a safe system of work is established and maintained. This sets IRATA International member companies apart from rope access companies that are not subject to such a rigorous scheme.

Like any other method of working at height, the application of rope access should be regarded as a complete system, in which planning, management, competence and suitable equipment should be treated with equal importance, as each is dependent on the others to ensure a safe system of work.

Funding advanced technologies to rid the world's oceans of plastic.

Providing microplastic trawls to collect data on plastic pollution
The Ocean Cleanup is a non-profit organisation designing and developing the first feasible method to rid the world's oceans of plastic. Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the ocean. A significant percentage of this plastic drifts into large ... Moresystems of circulating ocean currents, also known as gyres. Once trapped in a gyre, the plastic will break down into microplastics and become increasingly easier to mistake for food by sea life.

Going after it with vessels and nets would be costly, time-consuming, labour-intensive and lead to vast amounts of carbon emission and by-catch. That is why The Ocean Cleanup is developing a passive system, moving with the currents - just like the plastic - to catch it. The system consists of a 600-metre-long floater that sits at the surface of the water and a tapered 3-metre-deep skirt attached below. The floater provides buoyancy to the system and prevents plastic from flowing over it, while the skirt stops debris from escaping underneath. As the system moves through the water, the plastic continues to collect within the boundaries of the U-shaped system.

By deploying a fleet of systems, The Ocean Cleanup has estimated to be able to remove 50% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in just 5 years' time. The concentrated plastic will be brought back to shore for recycling and sold to B2C companies. The revenue gained will help fund the cleanup expansion to the other four ocean gyres.

In preparation for full-scale deployment, The Ocean Cleanup organised several expeditions to map the plastic pollution problem in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch to an unprecedented degree of detail. The team simultaneously advanced its design through a series of scale model tests, including prototypes deployed in the North Sea in 2016, 2017 and 2018. The first cleanup system is set to be deployed from California on 8 September 2018, being towed to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch to start its mission.
