Trauthwein Associate Publisher & Editor Email: trauthwein@marinelink.com The subsea industry is an amazingly complex and robust industry, offer- ing solutions to some of the world?s most dif cult problems from some of the smartest people on the planet. But while the solutions are complex, the premise is rather simple. Devising a means to ?see? more clearly and work more ef ciently underwater, as well as process more effectively the gargan- tuan amounts of data recovered. Easier said than done, of course, but take for example our cover story on the recent D-Day mapping mission. It has been almost 70 years since and a massive survey and archeological effort is underway to honor those who served. Today, through some of amazing technological advances, emerge some of the clearest images ever of the underwater remnants of that fateful day. For more turn to page 56. Turning the pages, Kira Coley of Planet Ocean writes for us an enlightening article on ?Acidic Oceans,? starting on page 44. The general health and welfare of the oceans and the entire aquatic environment is a hot topic today and for generations to come. Looking across the industry at the general maritime market, environmental initiatives are quite liter- ally spinning the collective industry on its head, as ship and boat owners today are more than ever required to comply with exacting and stringent limits on what they can and can- not put into the air and the water. Quite simply the technologies developed and deployed provide a far clearer ?big picture? in this regard, and Coley in her article documents the lat- est monitoring solutions available for the task at hand. How will this technology develop in the coming years? That is the question the XPRIZE foundation has taken on, announcing recently that it has partnered with the Wendy Schmidt Foundation to launch a $2m ?Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE? to spur global innovators to develop ocean pH sensors to transform our understanding of ocean acidi cation. Full details on the contest and your potential role starts on page 52 in the story ?X Prize Marks the Spot.? Finally, for any of you attending or exhibiting at Oceanology in London, I invite you to the Marine Technology Reporter stand A109 to share with our editorial team, which will be out in force, news and information on your recent works and new technology.
