Three illustrated papers by authors from Canada, New Zealand and the UK appear in the latest 72-page issue of The Hydrographic Journal, coinciding with Oceanology International 2010 in London. Published by the International Federation and distributed to members and others in over 70 countries, it is now the world's sole peer-reviewed publication of its type.

Learned paper topics are Re-Examining Reject Lidar Waveforms (Pim Kuus and John Hughes Clarke of the University of New Brunswick's Ocean Mapping Group, Canada), Scales of Sound Velocity Variability in Estuaries and Shallow Water Littoral Areas (Drs Richard Thain and Duncan Priestley of Britannia Naval College, Dartmouth, UK), and the first of an authoritative two-part assessment  of formative navigation of early settlements in the Pacific, Navigation & Discovery in the Polynesian Oceanic Empire (Stan Lusby, Robert Hannah and Peter Knight of the University of Otago, New Zealand).

Feature articles include a detailed consideration of conditions governing safe and effective operation of inshore survey vessels by David Dillingham of Dillingham Associates, UK while resident book reviewer Geoff Haskins casts an approving eye over new publications from the National Maritime Museum and Conway Maritime covering the endeavours of early Admiralty artist John Thomas Serres and the voyage of Beagle, Fitzroy's celebrated survey ship and its noted passenger, Charles Darwin.  There is also a tribute by David Goodfellow to the legendary Rear-Admiral Sir David Haslam, former Hydrographic Society President and Hydrographer of the UK Navy, who died last August at the age of 86.

Other contents comprise reports from 23 Corporate member organisations in addition to calendar sections and the customary Information Bulletin section featuring latest world hydrographic developments and activities.
