Old Venice has become famous for its pollution.
The claim is:
“As big ships sailed down the main canal, just a stone’s throw from the shore, my team recorded up to 500 ultra-fine particles per cubic centimetre – 500 times higher than clean sea air.”

From the 30th of December 2017 to the 26th of January 2018, all traffic starting with North Koreas country code (445) was logged from AISHub’s global feed. There are very few AIS reports. Only 1318 were logged in this time frame and most came from the UN BONG 2 (n=1236, 93.78%) .

On the 24. January 2018 during a very windy day the trawlers Destiny TT279 (235003952), Margarita TT26 (235090298), Spindrift (235113822),Silver Fern (235006892), Rebekah.Jayne (232003730), Silver Lining III (235006963), Alliance CN207 (235004196) drove in formation along the Kintyre coast.

I used to travel quite often with DFDS from Newcastle (North Shields) to Amsterdam (Ijmuiden) when I was a business analyst and partner in a company in Germany. As such I spent many nights on the North Sea on DFDS ships and saw many of the ships and ATons, Wind farms. I see them now again as data points.

823602 AIS positional signals were detected from 350 ships that have the word “MAERSK” in their name and whose AIS signals were transmitted over AISHUB. Data was recorded from 2017-12-16 19:56:09 to 2018-01-04 22:19:20.

These are the frequencies of DAC FID pairs in AIS Message 6 in data coming over AISHUB. 1586084 messages were recorded and analysed with R. With the pages from Arundale, gpsd and VT-Explorer a guess was made about the content of some of these messages.

Many AIS messages target specific MMSI. This means a Vessel or VTS (Vessel traffic service), or AtoN (Aid to Navigation) targets its messages to a certain MMSI destination. These messages can be binary, ASCII, Acknowledgements, GPS corrections, interrogations or assignment mode commands.

1496 unique MMSI were extracted from AISHUB‘s data feed from Message 21 (Aid-to-Navigation Report). This was analysed with a simple R script.
Interestingly many windfarms in the North Sea report as AToNs.
