MMF 58

Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) will be hosting MMF58 on an, as yet, unspecified date during late Summer/Autumn 2016.

The Steering Group expressed its delight at securing these forward bookings which confirm the sector’s enthusiasm for the MMF format combining, as it does, a series of short presentations on diverse marine subjects with ample opportunity for networking, all under the umbrella of low cost attendance.  Further news regarding both events will be announced here on the MMF website as well as via our editorial section in International Ocean Systems journal and other marine related newsletters.


NOC hosts 56th Marine Measurement Forum

The National Oceanography Centre hosted the 56th Marine Measurement Forum on 15 July in what was a rare excursion out of the South of England. The event was held in the Foresight Centre, adjacent to the NOC’s Liverpool site and saw a strong turn out of around 50 delegates in attendance. Speakers from a range of organisations; industrial, academic and professional bodies gave presentations and there were opportunities for delegates to visit the NOC’s Liverpool workshops where the Ocean Technology and Engineering group spent time showcasing their capabilities and scientific equipment.
