    processing and interpretation choices made to address data processing and storage limitations resulted in data reductions that no longer included water column data The new multibeam technology and processing choices have reintroduced water column bubble detection WCBD now in the form of a digital bubble to the interpreter s toolbox Today market forces are driving the need to reduce costs for deep water exploration Exploration teams are realizing that smart geochemical surveys can help guide where to shoot expensive 3D surveys Others are taking the bubble detection ability further and want to use remotely operated vehicles and robot submarines to directly sample and analyze the natural seeps The inexpensive bubble detection technology is now also being used to help define baseline environmental conditions before field development commences monitor deepwater developments for gas leaks in infrastructure and identify and characterize induced leaks and other changes in seafloor conditions resulting from production activities Improved application of this technology will be part of operators regular production field monitoring maintenance and environmental stewardship programs

Marine Geosciences in Houston in 1997 There he interpreted offshore 3D seismic data high resolution survey geochemical and geotechnical data in support of offshore engineering and drilling operations Dan left Fugro in 2003 to start a Houston based geohazard consulting group at AOA Geophysics which would augment their seafloor mapping and seep survey business Dan returned to Fugro in 2011 when AOA Geophysics was acquired and integrated with Fugro s offshore consulting group For a brief time Dan managed Fugro s Houston based offshore consulting business He now works on aligning and integrating Fugro s service offerings across the Americas Dan has written numerous articles about deepwater site conditions His main contribution has been the identification and quantification of gas hydrate

Future U S Datums PRESENTED BY Denis Riordan NOAA National Geodetic Survey NGS The official geometric datum horizontal for the United States is the North American Datum of 1983 NAD 83 This national datum has had three major updates since it was first published with the last one being the NAD83 2011 national adjustment The official U S vertical datum is the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 NAVD 88 and is referenced through bench marks that are subject to change over time This network of passive control has associated inaccuracies and is deteriorating daily through various types of construction crustal movement lack of re observations etc The National Geodetic Survey NGS is currently working to define and adopt a geocentric reference datum for the United States to replace NAD 83 At the same time NGS is working to compute an accurate geoid model which will serve as the defining surface of a new vertical datum that will be accessed through GNSS technology Access to orthometric heights will be determined through future high accuracy geoid models replacing NAVD 88 as the defining vertical datum These two changes are dependent upon one another in a variety of ways and are currently planned to occur simultaneously This presentation will provide a brief history of datums for the U S discuss why we need

Dear Members Guests It s April and that means that our annual APSG Spring Meeting is just around the corner This spring we re getting back to basics by focusing on how we got where we are today in geodesy and why it matters greatly to every one of us Plan now to join us on Friday May 10 for a valuable and much anticipated series of presentations by industry experts from around the world on the topic of Getting Back to Our Geodetic Roots This spring s meeting features six outstanding talks that will examine and explain the full historic impact of geodesy in chronological sequence up to and including our present reality Have you ever asked the following fundamental questions Why I am not working in just WGS 84 How and why were datums and map projections created Why are there so many geodetic datums Where does height figure in all this What and why is the geoid important How were measurements made before satellite technologies Many historic events do influence today s handling of geodetic data in our business so it s instructive to reflect on that history and understand how to correctly evaluate and integrate historical data with our current day spatial data Come to the spring meeting and get the answers to all of these questions and more Register for this meeting TODAY and then come join us on May 10th for a great day of reflection insight learning networking and just plain fun See the agenda and check out the Upcoming Events section of the APSG website home pag e for all the details of the APSG29 Spring 2013 Meeting If you have any comments or concerns please
