TechWorks Marine White Paper on Marine Environment Monitoring with the EPA

April 23, 2021

TechWorks Marine has developed the CoastEye MiniBuoy, a lightweight buoy which can be easily deployed by two people. It has been designed for real-time monitoring in coastal and freshwater environments, in particular water quality monitoring.

TechWorks Marine supplied the EPA with a MiniBuoy in 2019, and it was used as a case study to monitor conditions in Cork Harbour in late 2019. The details of the case study are provided in the white paper linked here.

For more details on the CoastEye MiniBuoy, please get in touch via email ( or phone (+353 1 236 5990).

Satellite data fill in gaps in our seafloor bathymetry maps.

Dec. 22, 2016

Shallow waters are not easy to access for the large vessels normally used in seabed surveys, leaving a gap in marine charts in the most used and most challenging areas for navigation. Satellite data can be used to fill this gap, as more of the light reflected from the seafloor in deep waters is scattered, so shallower areas appear lighter in satellite images. 

A study to improve observations of seafloor depth from satellites was carried out by TechWorks, the National Centre for Geocomputation at Maynooth University and the Geological Survey of Ireland. The study was funded by Science Foundation Ireland under their Industry Fellowship program and the results have been  published online in Hydro International
