EMODnet Geology partner Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI) will organise a session on seafloor mapping at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, the largest geoscience meeting in the world. The meeting will take place in San Francisco, from 9 until 13 December 2019.
Within the session, named "Beyond Hydrography: Seafloor Mapping as Critical Data for Understanding Our Oceans", varied uses for mapping data will be showcased. The Seafloor Mapping theme is a critical baseline dataset for a variety of marine studies and technological developments.
Another interesting session to register for, is "Standards for the Benefit of Science and Society". This session, co-chaired by the IEEE, will focus on the development and adoption of standards and best practices in light of the F.A.I.R.ness of data, including sociological factors.
Registrations for submitting an abstract for a session are open until 31 July!
