GEOHAB (Marine Geological and Biological Habitat Mapping) is an international association of marine scientists studying and mapping biophysical (i.e. geologic and oceanographic) indicators of benthic communities, species diversity and distribution.
The GeoHab 2016 conference will be held in Winchester, England, the ancient capital of Wessex, from Monday 2nd to Friday 6th May 2016.
This annual conference brings together over 120 biologists, geologists, environmental scientists, spatial analysts, technologists, acousticians and environmental advisors from around the world and provides a unique multidisciplinary forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas that underpin sustain-able ocean management. The conference also houses an exhibition of industry technology and products used in the marine environmental community. Because of the relatively small number of delegates and focused topics, GeoHab conferences are organised as an informal, single-stream session, which encourages dialogue between delegates and exhibitors.
Students are encouraged to attend and grants are available.
GeoHab is now in its 15th year and has several publications ( see http://geohab.org/publications/ )
