Australian Marine Science Conference Eventranet 2017

Using Novel Technologies to Answer Key Questions in Marine Science


Optimum management of marine resources is arguably one of our most pressing environmental challenges. Our capacity to respond to such a challenge is directly proportionate to our knowledge of the drivers, impacts and ecology in the marine environment. Improved accuracy and precision in predicting and measuring the impact of environmental changes caused by climate and local factors is central to our response. There is little doubt that science and technology must play a vital role in devising the solutions necessary to overcome problems arising in the marine environment. Our workshop presenters (Prof Graeme Hays (Deakin University) and Richard Fitzpatrick (Biopixel)) will demonstrate some of their recent technological applications in the marine world. Demonstrations of applied technology including remote sensing and drone technology will be used to show how to capture year-round data, increase fieldwork efficiency and improve data resolution and accuracy, as well as creating new research opportunities. Discussion is encouraged and light dinner provided
