International Fall School in Hydrographic Surveying
October 25 - October 29
The crucial role of detailed knowledge of the seabed has never been so well highlighted as recently with the proclamation by the United Nations of the Decade of Ocean Sciences for Sustainable Development (2021 – 2030) or the Nippon Foundation – GEBCO Seabed 2030 project aiming at 100% of the seabed mapped worldwide by 2030. Such an intensification of hydrographic surveys brings new opportunities in terms of recruitment of Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP) as well as technological and methodological solutions.
Now in its second year, this international fall school provides participants with a unique multi-disciplinary training experience, involving close interaction with high-level scientists, professional and stakeholders from the hydrospatial and maritime fields in a cutting-edge technological context. Participants will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and develop their competencies through courses, practical work, conferences and activities allowing them to live the experience of surveying on board a hydrographic vessel.
*Bilingual school (French and English) and offered in a hybrid mode (on campus at Université Laval and online).
This international fall school is part of the Canadian Ocean Mapping Research and Education Network (COMREN).
