THS UK to host 51st Marine Measurement Forum

28 August 2012

The Hydrographic Society UK is pleased to announce that it will host the next Marine Measurement Forum event in Southampton on Wednesday 5th December 2012.

The Marine Measurement Forum (MMF) is a series of one-day, non-profit making events that provides opportunities for the informal exchange of ideas, knowledge, techniques and developments across an extensive range of marine scientific measurement activities.  Attendees typically include scientists, surveyors, engineers and business people from a variety of organisations including research centres, academia, manufacturers, survey companies, consultants, monitoring authorities, dredging companies, port authorities, oil companies, societies, etc.

Following the celebrations to mark the 50th Forum earlier this year, THS UK is delighted to have been selected by the MMF Steering Committee to organise and host the next meeting. The Southern Region committee of THS UK, lead by William Heaps of Associated British Ports, look forward to welcoming delegates and speakers to its regular meeting venue - the historic steamship, SS Shieldhall which is berthed in Southampton's busy Eastern Docks.

THS UK is now looking for volunteers to give presentations to their colleagues (of around 15-20 minutes in duration) on the latest developments in the diverse field of Marine Measurement and Technology.

MMFs are invariably well attended, and in this case places will be limited to approximately 60 by the size of the venue, so early expressions of interest are advised.

As the programme develops, further announcements will be made regarding the cost of attendance (which as ever, will be kept as low as possible) and how to register.

Further details will be published on both the MMF website and on the dedicated page on this website.

For more information, and/or to volunteer as a presenter, please contact the organisers by email to
