Sunday 28 August 2016
Organized in the frame of the 35th International Geological Congress 2016 in Cape Town, South Africa, this course will cover the state-of-the-art, principles and methodologies of seafloor and sub-seafloor surveying and exploration relevant to the Earth Sciences. Participants will be introduced to a range of geophysical, visual and seabed sampling techniques, as well as commercial and open-source software for data manipulation, processing and visualisation. By the end of the course, students will have a better understanding of the basic theoretical concepts and operational foundation of seafloor mapping, which will be relevant for both commercial and academic assignments.
