MAREMAP Conference

Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 November 2013, The Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE)

In the last few years there has been a tremendous increase in the amount of high resolution surveying on the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS) which is underpinning the sustainable development of the UKCS. This interdisciplinary conference is being planned to highlight the science and understanding which is revolutionising our understanding of the seabed and shallow geology. The conference and follow-up scientific journal will provide a showcase for this research and will bring together government, academia and the commercial sector to share techniques and understanding. This is a joint event with MAREMAP partners: British Geological Survey (BGS), Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) and the National Oceanography Centre (NOC).
