Our team proudly undertook an installation recently for the UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) in Anguilla, a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean.
The successful trip formed part of the Marine Environmental Monitoring Systems (MEMS) – A 3-year Framework Agreement that OceanWise have been contracted to complete which includes sensor installations, provision of a data platform, shore control and GNSS surveys, as well as local training and mentoring.
The UKHO have now published an article titled “Exploring Anguilla’s marine environment through geospatial data” (June 2023) which explains in details the wider project in Anguilla and explores how the data that the project provides, supports safe navigation.
Extract taken from the article below:
“The MEMS will provide real-time vertical movement of the sea level and meteorological data to support marine operations.
The MEMS data is linked to the UNESCO sea level station monitoring network, which provides real-time information on the operational status of global and regional networks of sea level stations. This gives the scientific community access to the Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Tsunami and Other Coastal Hazards Warning System for the Caribbean and Adjacent Regions, which supports transnational challenges such as climate change and extreme weather events.”
OceanWise are very proud to be working on the MEMs project and with the UKHO supporting their work and the benefits that these improvements will bring for Anguilla, the UKHO and overseas territories.
