Measuring and looking after our water resource is a hot topic worldwide. Governments, Councils, Water Authorities, Companies and individuals all are increasing their efforts to help protect this resource. EU Legislation around monitoring landfills, nitrate levels and the water framework directive have been introduced to help guide water quality monitoring. Aquaread’s range of water quality instruments are all suitable for spot, short and long-term deployments and are a popular choice for companies as they...
Surface water monitoring as an application covers many different environments and can require different equipment depending on the monitoring requirements. Possible environments include lakes, rivers and coastal waters where the monitoring may be focused on water quality or water level measurement. Aquaread offer instruments suitable for each of these environments and have a wide range of possibilities depending on the kind of data you wish to collect.
Our samplers and analyzersare two complementary products for water sampling and monitoring in natural settings. Placed at various strategic points along a river, coastal zone, or lake, they perform sampling and microbiological or chemical analysis operations.
Dragflow dredging equipments are widely used in underwater excavation and dredging activities. Dragflow pumps are design to work both in shallow seas, or fresh water areas, as well as in deep water applications. The unique design of dredging cutters allows Dragflow equipments to reach an exceptional solid concentration also in presence of very compact soil.
Coastal erosion is the wearing away of land or the removal of beach or dune sediments by wave action, tidal currents, wave currents, or drainage. Removing sand and other materials from beaches and dunes due to tidal storm surges and construction purposes causes massive beach erosion damages and land loss of seashores, thus destroying the natural heritage of the coast and reducing the vibrancy of the tourism industry. Uprooting vegetation from coastal areas destabilises beaches and clearing sites inland results in...
Fugro OCEANOR SEAWATCH systems have been installed in numerous countries around the world. They have an impressive operational record from the roughest seas worldwide, the Arctic and the Tropics, to the coastal zones.
Monitor meteorological, oceanographic, water quality conditions
Monitor algae blooms
Improve coastal zone management
Assist with oil spill contingency planning and forecasting
Coastal & Nearshore
For coastal and nearshore use DESMI provides the well known Ro-Boom product but in smaller sizes whilst maintaining the integrity of the larger product offerings. Alternatively, you may want to consider SPI or a lighter weight boom if there are deployment and recovery considerations or restrictions. Under these circumstances, the Troilboom AF (Air Filled) offers a light weight rapid response solution. It is manufactured as standard in bright orange polyurethane fabric offering durability and...
From Spain’s national tide monitoring network to storm surge detection in Korea, sea state monitoring and erosion protection in Japan to oil spill detection in India, Miros sensors and solutions help protect coastlines, ports and critical infrastructure all around the world.

New geographic information system (GIS) technology tools enable you to better understand and represent the systems at work in the seas and oceans. From the coastal shoreline to the bathymetric bottom, marine GIS has been adapted and implemented to help you achieve your goals in coastal zone management, research, ocean industries, and navigation.
coastal and hydraulic engineering studies, environmental planning and technical risk analysis for SLR scenarios and adaptation strategies. Coastal impacts of sea level rise are non linear and complex. Simple flood maps don't necessarily answer the important questions that need to be addressed for long term planning and design of ecology based adaptation solutions.
The recorded death of fish in the river that flows out of the industrial zone of Scarlino has created the need of the installation of a biological alarm system. The decision was made to work with an automatic system, iTOXcontrol created by microLAN-The Netherlands represented in Italy by Ecotox Lds, which uses marine bacteria. The system compares the values of the light emission from these organisms at the entrance and exit of the canal, generating alarms in the presence of toxic substances.
Sea level rise actively threatens our coastal infrastructure. StormSensor makes it easy and affordable to track changing coastal flow patterns in real time. So you can respond to events as they occur and base decisions regarding future infrastructure upgrades on solid data.
