The United Kingdom Hydrographic Office and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency will host “Shallow Survey 2015” and a number of associated events in Plymouth, Devon, United Kingdom, from 14-18 September 2015.
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 was collected within the superb natural harbor of Plymouth Sound during the summer of 2014.
Production and dissemination of the Common Data Set will allow the delegates to analyse and compare the results from different survey equipment before submitting papers for the conference.
