EEEGR Marine SIG- Shallow Water Deep Trouble II - What a Difference a Decade Makes
EEEGR Marine SIG are pleased to co-host a prestigious technical meeting in partnership with the Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) at Norwich City Football Club. This venue has ample parking and is about 10 minute’s walk from Norwich Railway Station.
Site investigations in the nearshore and shallow water can present unique challenges, with potentially significant variations in ground conditions, bathymetry and environmental parameters within individual development sites and construction
time scales. Investigations may be for a range of purposes – from providing baseline environmental information and site characterisation through to informing engineering decisions and infrastructure siting.
Since the first ‘Shallow Water … Deep Trouble’ meeting was held in 2005 in Norwich, there have been major advances in data acquisition technology, analytical techniques, data processing and visualization, that have improved site investigation practice and advanced our understanding of the shallow water zone. This meeting will report on a range of approaches to shallow water site investigation, as well as providing an update on recent methodological advances, that allow for successful site investigations in a challenging environment. The meeting will be of interest to all those working in nearshore and shallow waters – with contributions from industry, academia, contractors and consultants.
