Greetings from Stafford, TX!

And speaking of new, we have a new Offshore Tech Eric Aronchick. Eric graduated from Florida Tech three years ago with a BS in Oceanography. Since then he has been working on a variety of ocean projects in the Gulf of Mexico from seafloor mapping and object detection studies, to NOAA PORTS current meter system installation and maintenance, to red tide toxin analyses, to water sampling after the Deepwater Horizon incident. Eric has decided to take full advantage of the city life by taking up residence in mid-town Houston. But he still will be pursuing his interests in sailing and road biking.

Fortunately we continue to be quite busy with projects from the oil industry. We have done several projects for the joint industry groups CASE/EJIP and DeepStar (Metocean) in the last few years. We are now completing an extension of a database of deepwater currents for DeepStar and just starting a new project for CASE/EJIP to analyse and hopefully upgrade their Gulf Eddy Model.

Installation and maintenance of ADCP systems on new drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico continues to be a major part of our work. This year we will also begin an interesting metocean measurement program in the Caspian Sea.
