Mapping the underwater world in 3-D

Scientists will be able to view the sea bed in incredible 3-D detail following new investment and collaboration in the School of Earth, Ocean and Planetary Science at Cardiff University, UK.

The new CodaOctopus laboratory will map extensive areas of the sea bed to create a virtual reality image, allowing scientists to walk the sea bed from the laboratory. It features novel 3-D methods to map the seabed, addressing risks in terms of marine security, the environment and health and safety.

Dr Chris Wooldridge, Project Co-ordinator and Senior Lecturer in the School of Earth, Ocean and Planetary Science, said: "At a time of increased risk in terms of marine security, the environment and health and safety, mapping the seabed and bringing the results to a wider audience is an important part of our research within the School of Earth, Ocean and Planetary Science. This collaboration will provide visualisation of the seabed for scientists and strategic decision makers for purposes of renewable energy, port operations, dredging and environmental protection."

The University has recently invested over 200,000 in seabed mapping technology from Science Research Investment Fund (SRIF). The impact of this has been enhanced by a further 50,000 sponsorship in computer software and hardware provided by CodaOctopus, an internationally recognised company specialising in underwater technologies for imaging, mapping, defence and survey.

Paul Baxter, Commercial Manager of CodaOctopus said: "CodaOctopus is pleased to sponsor this geophysical research laboratory and to be associated with Cardiff University. CodaOctopus has a strong tradition of bringing scientific research into commercial applications and with this new partnership, hopes to foster strong links between academia and industry with the aim of focusing research on commercial requirements and developing further the University's marine reputation."
