Coastal & Estuarine Monitoring

Increasing demand on coastal resources has lead to a greater demand for real-time monitoring of environmental factors such as waves, currents and tides. Ocean Scientific International Ltd (OSIL) has been involved in supplying a wide range of monitoring and measurement systems for coastal regions throughout the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

Dredge Turbidity Monitoring

Increased shipping worldwide, combined with new port developments and expansion of current facilities (including larger and deeper access channels, turning basins and appropriate water depths) to accommodate increased traffic, has lead to an increase in global dredging, with many of these dredged sites later requiring maintenance dredging to maintain safe operational water depths for navigation

Meteorology

We offer a range of meteorological sensors for operation in harsh environments. Parameters measured include wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and rainfall. Digital display units and data handling can offer easy-to-read presentation of meteorological conditions from offshore and onshore locations

Oil & Gas, Renewables

Increasing focus on efficiency and emergency response has lead to a greater demand for real-time monitoring of environmental factors such as metocean (wind), waves, currents and tides. Tighter controls on pollution have placed higher demand on the quantity and quality of analyses of water and sediment, and many of these data can now be provided

Salinity Measurement & Standards

OSIL are world leading experts in salinity, having operated the IAPSO Standard Seawater Service for many years. Salinity is one of the most measured parameters in oceanography and is used widely in marine chemistry, physics and biology. The quality and comparability of salinity data worldwide depends largely on the widespread use of IAPSO Standard Seawater

Sediment Sampling

Solutions A range of seabed sampling equipment is available from OSIL, from off the shelf items such as grabs and box corers to bespoke coring systems including gravity corers, piston corers (up to 42m) and vibrocorers for dense or compacted sediments. A range of multiple corers can provide samples with an undisturbed sediment/water interface.
