Coastal ecosystems span from watersheds to the deep sea and are extremely complex. This complexity drives multi-disciplinary approaches to better understand the coupled mechanisms that define ocean ecology. The rapid evolution of the Integrated Ocean Observation System (IOOS) and the Ocean Observing Initiative (OOI) are made possible through rapidly developing technology, interdisciplinary partnerships, and networked data sharing. These networks capture ocean hydrography and hydrodynamics at fine scales in space and time over regional spatial extents. The networks are enabled by rapid advances in technology, from satellites in space to robots below the ocean surface. These systems are built to support both basic research and the practical needs of society, including offshore resource management and the economy. This section will introduce the technologies and approaches that advance our scientific understanding of coupled ocean physical, biological and chemical processes that are the foundation of seascape ecology.

While the final survey report is often the only tangible at the end of a project, the process has many stages completed by various individuals with a range of skills. At Bibby HydroMap we work hard to ensure each step is performed to the best of our ability, with integrity and quality at the core.
