Hydro18 | Sydney

30th October -2nd November 2018

The Australasian Hydrographic Society (AHS) is hosting Hydro18, the 26th international Hydrographic Conference and Exhibition of the International Federation of Hydrographic Societies (IFHS) at Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf, Pyrmont in Sydney, Australia.

The Conference theme 'The Climate for Change - Hydrography in the 21st Century' will allow delegates and the hydrographic profession to consider how best to future utilise the science of hydrography to adapt to climate change, resource sustainability and renewable energy requirements. Hydrography is the key to facing the rising tide of climate change, knowing our oceans and understanding our future.

Hydro18 hopes to highlight the challenges and opportunities related to climate change for the world through hydrography. The Conference will provide interest whether as a member of the hydrographic industry, policy maker, academic or layman.

Hydro18 will bring together speakers from varying maritime fields including all of the specialist hydrographic streams, maritime transport, oceanography, offshore exploration, environmental science, maritime heritage, defence, tourism, coastal development, ports and harbours and government. It will also provide a forum to discuss aspects of the opportunities and challenges facing hydrography. A very large proportion of trade is carried by maritime transport and, along with increasing sea levels, our lives will be affected in some way or another.

This international symposium seeks to gain insight into these effects and the opportunities that may arise, as well as provide a platform to show how currently important hydrography and the 'Blue Economy' is globally.
