3rd Applied Shallow Marine Geophysics Conference

Near Surface Geoscience Conference & Exhibition 2018

9 - 13 September
Porto, Portugal
Call for papers

EAGE's annual Near Surface Geoscience Conference & Exhibition is taking place in Porto, Portugal from 9-13 September 2018. For this edition, the event consists of the 3rd Applied Shallow Marine Geophysics Conference, the 24th European Meeting of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics and the 2nd Conference on Geophysics for Mineral Exploration and Mining.

Invitation to the 3rd Shallow Marine Geophysics Conference:  

"The safe assessment of site conditions for all types of fixed marine installations and infrastructure requires a detailed understanding of the shallow overburden and the changes therein over the lifetime of the field development. This critical objective can only be achieved through the extensive use of complementary geophysical methods and monitoring, as well as a proper integration with geotechnical, geomechanical and metocean data and models.
Following the successes of the First and Second Applied Shallow Marine Geophysics conferences in Athens (2014) and Barcelona (2016), professionals from academia, research centers, service companies, operators and offshore energy companies will re-convene in Porto (9–13 September 2018) to further present and discuss the state-of-the-art in
characterizing the shallow overburden from coastal areas to the deep sea."

Chairman of the Third Shallow Marine Geophysics Conference

Porto’s streets and houses are filled with history, magnificent monuments and interesting museums but also a thriving and cosmopolitan downtown area with a very intense nightlife, charming parks and gardens and traditional and gourmet restaurants.

Porto is known for its bridges that span the Rio Douro as well as its XIX century iron bridges, iron architecture, Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque, Neo-classical art and traditional Portuguese buildings and balconies. Across the Douro is the Ribeira in Gaia that houses the famous and unavoidable port wine cellars, taverns and restaurants.
