The 7th International Conference on High Resolution Surveys in Shallow Water promotes progress in seabed mapping in the coastal environment.
Established in Sydney,
Australia in 1999 and held since in New Hampshire, USA in 2001 and again in
Sydney in 2003, Plymouth, UK in 2005, New Hampshire in 2008, New Zealand in 2012, this international conference returns to Plymouth in 2015.
The UK Hydrographic Office and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency are hosting this conference alongside a number of associated events in conjunction with Plymouth University.
The theme of the conference, 'High Resolution Surveys in Shallow Water' will be explored using a "Common Data Set". The Common Data Set is a series of different surveys obtained by a range of equipment types and models over the same area of seabed.
In this instance, the Common Data Set will be collected within the superb natural harbour of Plymouth Sound during the summer of 2014, enabling delegates to observe and compare how different equipment and techniques work in a common location. Production and dissemination of the Common Data Set will then allow the delegates to analyse and compare the results from different survey equipment before submitting papers for the conference.
