    Dynamic Response Spectroscopy corrosion mapping utilises low frequency ultrasound to penetrate coatings and excite the natural vibration frequencies of the underlying steel. A custom DRS probe, held above the pipe surface, emits a broad range of low ultrasonic frequencies. The lower attenuation at these frequencies allows the ultrasound to pass more easily through challenging coatings. The steel responds to the input signal, vibrating at frequencies related to its thickness. These vibrations pass out through the coating and are received by the DRS probe as it scans across the pipe surface. The frequency content of the received signals is then extracted, using advanced signal processing algorithms developed by Sonomatic, and used to determine the thickness profile of the steel.

Operation HARDTACK I consisted of 35 nuclear tests conducted at the Pacific Proving Ground between April 28 and August 18, 1958. These tests included balloon, surface, barge, underwater, and rocket-borne high-altitude tests. The first test, Yucca, was a nuclear device attached to a helium balloon launched from the USS Boxer near Enewetak Atoll. HARDTACK I consisted of three portions; the first was the development of nuclear weapons. This was a continuation of the type of testing conducted at Enewetak and Bikini during the early and mid-1950s. In these tests, the weapons development laboratories, Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory and the University of California Radiation Laboratory (later named Lawrence-Livermore National Laboratory), detonated their experimental devices, while the Department of Defense (DoD) provided support and conducted experiments that did not interfere with Atomic Energy Commission activities. The second portion, sponsored by the DoD, consisted of the underwater tests Wahoo and Umbrella. Wahoo was detonated in the deep, open ocean southwest of Boken Island, and Umbrella inside the western end of the lagoon at Enewetak. The purpose of these tests was to improve the understanding of the effects of underwater explosions on Navy ships and material. These were continuations of earlier underwater testing that included Baker in CROSSROADS at Bikini in 1946 and WIGWAM off the U.S. West Coast in 1955. The DoD also sponsored the third portion, addressing the military problems of air-borne nuclear weapon defense. Three high-altitude tests featured rocket-borne Teak and Orange at Johnston Island and balloon-hoisted Yucca between Enewetak and Bikini. Two major aspects of HARDTACK I's experimental program were the development of the weapons themselves and the measurement of the explosive and radiation effects. Also, since the development of a nuclear armed fleet ballistic missile was on a fast track, a portion of HARDTACK I was devoted to testing the warhead for the Polaris missile. The tests comprising the 1958 Operation HARDTACK I were as follows: YUCCA, April 28, Pacific (between Enewetak and Bikini), balloon, weapons effects, 1.7 kilotons (kt) CACTUS, May 5, Enewetak, surface, weapons related, 18 kt FIR, May 11, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 1.36 megatons (Mt) BUTTERNUT, May 11, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 81 kt KOA, May 12, Enewetak, surface, weapons related, l.37 Mt WAHOO, May 16, near Enewetak, underwater, weapons effects, 9 kt HOLLY, May 20, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 5.9 kt NUTMEG, May 21, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 25.1 kt YELLOWWOOD, May 26, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 330 kt MAGNOLIA, May 26, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 57 kt TOBACCO, May 30, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 11.6 kt SYCAMORE, May 31, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 92 kt ROSE, June 2, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 15 kt UMBRELLA, June 8, near Enewetak, underwater, weapons effects, 8 kt MAPLE, June 10, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 213 kt ASPEN, June 14, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 319 kt WALNUT, June 14, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 1.45 Mt LINDEN, June 18, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 11 kt REDWOOD, June 27, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 412 kt ELDER, June 27, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 880 kt OAK, June 28, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 8.9 Mt HICKORY, June 29, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 14 kt SEQUOIA, July 1, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 5.2 kt CEDAR, July 2, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 220 kt DOGWOOD, July 5, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 397 kt POPLAR, July 12, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 9.3 Mt SCAEVOLA, July 14, near Enewetak, barge, safety experiment, zero yield PISONIA, July 17, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 255 kt JUNIPER, July 22, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 65 kt OLIVE, July 22, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 202 kt PINE, July 26, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 2 Mt TEAK, August 1, off Johnston Island area, rocket, weapons effects, 3.8 Mt QUINCE, August 6, Enewetak, surface, weapons related, zero yield ORANGE, August 12, off Johnston Island area, rocket, weapons effects, 3.8 Mt FIG, August 18, Enewetak, surface, weapons related, 20 tons

Multifunctional complexes and sustainable resorts located out on the Sea and networked with their Cities We have devised systems that will serve as urban landmarks. They will work as recycling water plants, renewable energy power plants (solar, wind, tidal, bio-gas and geothermal), marine biology laboratories, and as inhabitable sculptures! The pride of their citizens. When thinking about the way societies and cities would grow in the future, the exploitation of resources and contamination of land, air and water will be the major factors determining if they could develop organized, responsible and positive or chaotic destructive and threatened. The greatest problems could be first mitigated and then solved by restructuring the way cities work: 1. The centralized provision of basic needs. It has to be helped by other providers, locally, decentralized! 2. The energy crisis, dependency on fossil fuels, contamination, expansion of landfills, depletion of groundwater tables and potable water contamination! 3. The wasteful and irresponsible behavior. We have to set the example that the opposite is possible, profitable and enjoyable! 4. The pollution of coastal cities. We must clean them! 5. very little is done to repair what has already been damaged! 6. The increase and misuse of land occupation. We have to find our home-place somewhere else, in the sea! Our solution: The first residential, commercial and Eco-tourism luxury resorts in an Eco-energy power farm and water recycling plant standing on a marine platform complex! Inspired by the City of Cancun, the capital of tourism in the Mayan Riviera -which in the year 2020 will celebrate its 50th founding anniversary-, a complex was conceived adapting the meaning of "kaan kun" (Nest of Snakes) and the magical legend of the Mayan Serpent God in its design. This Eco-platform was called "Grand Cancun" and condensed all ideas on self-sustainability explored in several projects and lectures. The Grand Cancun was conceived from the core to fight global warming (i.e. CO2 emissions). The systems on it contribute to the environment. resets urbanism towards the new clean metropolis, projecting the pride of a "sense of purpose" on its residents, amplifying the interest of its visitors and serving as a platform for business and finance, including luxury Eco-tourism. The standard Offshore Eco-Platform will be a mega-building, an offshore city standing on stilts where hotels, shopping malls, convention-congress centers, cinemas and loads more will provide all the needs and experiences available in a small city, while being totally self-sufficient, having a zero-carbon-footprint, and providing the surrounding land community with drinking water and energy from renewable resources! But the most interesting thing is that it will clean the seas! The shape of the building, its waterfront, and the coastal line will direct water right through waste collectors for floating solids and hydrocarbons. The water will be also nourished and purified to increase marine life. Above the water everything is planned to care for the environment, and about motivating people to share the responsibility. Grand Cancun will generate surplus of clean, local renewable energy and alleviate to some extend the city's energy needs. Solar panels will cover most of light-facing areas, including see-through photovoltaic polymers on transparent surfaces. Every residential block on the tower will have vertical wind turbines and solar panels.. There are also underwater energy collectors of tidal and wave energy, Geothermal energy collectors according to location, and waste-to-biogas power plants by anaerobic digestion. The lower level of the platforms would hold all the power plants and energy storage systems. Like all existing oil platforms, the project would contain large desalination plants producing drinking water for all the users of the complex and some for the community. All rainwater will be collected and reused. Wastewater is not wasted! It will be recycled, purified and reused for gardens. Here there is a chance to study and monitor the marine development of the Eco-platforms by installing marine biology laboratories and environmental studies/sustainable energy university departments. When this new green architecture gets built, it will reset around the globe the standards about what is possible and ideal as a resort, and will change the way we see our cities forever. The best of the idea is that eventually his building concept will be replicated in such a scale that the return to pristine clean beaches will definitively be there for our grandchildren to enjoy. The feasibility of the platforms is enormous considering the many different types of platforms and mooring available now, prepared to take any environmental conditions in all geographical locations, including eventually some far in the middle of the oceans, cleaning, protecting, generating. The ultimate stewards of the seas!

The ULS-100 Underwater Laser Scanner is designed to operate in harsh underwater environments where measurement data is required. This sensor can obtain data for anything from assessing the structural integrity of damaged or aging infrastructure to scientific and archaeological research. Since the ULS-100 Underwater Laser Scanner is an optical system, the performance of the system in an underwater environment is effected by the water clarity in that environment. The ULS-100 has silt filtering algorithms built into the system to mitigate the impact of water with a high silt content. A demonstration of the performance of the ULS-100 in a variety of water clarity conditions is presented.

DRS Corrosion Mapping

DRS Corrosion Mapping

Dynamic Response Spectroscopy corrosion mapping utilises low frequency ultrasound to penetrate coatings and excite the natural vibration frequencies of the underlying steel. A custom DRS probe, held above the pipe surface, emits a broad range of low ultrasonic frequencies. The lower attenuation at these frequencies allows the ultrasound to pass more easily through challenging coatings. The steel responds to the input signal, vibrating at frequencies related to its thickness. These vibrations pass out through the coating and are received by the DRS probe as it scans across the pipe surface. The frequency content of the received signals is then extracted, using advanced signal processing algorithms developed by Sonomatic, and used to determine the thickness profile of the steel. Over the past two years Sonomatic has developed DRS from a theoretical concept, through a process of computer modelling and laboratory testing, to a field-ready inspection system capable of both subsea and topside corrosion mapping. A comparison between conventional ultrasonic wall thickness measurements and DRS corrosion mapping on a corroded steel plate has shown the technique to have a thickness accuracy of 0.5 mm. The DRS spatial resolution is currently 10 mm, although further development work is ongoing to refine this.

Marine biologist Joop Coolen is conducting a study in close cooperation with IMARES Wageningen UR on the biodiversity on and around offshore installations in the Dutch part of the North Sea. His doctoral research also includes other infrastructures such as offshore wind parks, ship wrecks and natural reefs. ENGIE E&P is in favour of this study as the results could contribute to other insights in improving the health of the North Sea ecosystem. Joop Coolen collects samples of the subsea life on several locations and installations of ENGIE E&P. In order to prepare the samples, or to cool or freeze them for further study in the IMARES laboratory in Den Helder, Joop Coolen has the disposition of a special container on board the maintenance vessel.
