Webinar: Introduction to Integrated Marine Site Characterization
A marine site investigation integrates geology, geophysics, and geotechnical data to develop the soil properties required to understand geological constraints and to gather information to design submarine foundations and layouts.
The webinar is aimed to Geoscientists, Marine Archeologists and Geotechnical Engineers that want to learn how to integrate the geophysical and geotechnical data.

Webinar: Simultaneous AUV Survey and Seabed Sampling Operations to Optimize Marine Mineral Exploration Programs
After decades of virtual inactivity in the deepwater mining industry, new commercial initiatives by private companies are now underway to collect data on deepwater seabed mineral deposits. The renewed interest is due to need for metals such as cobalt and copper, as well as REE’s (Rare Earth Elements) that are needed to supply the forecasted shift from fossil fuel vehicles to electric vehicles and to supply critical metals for green-tech applications such as wind turbines.
This talk illustrates some of the most challenging marine mining site-characterization work recently undertaken. Specifically, it is about successfully executing simultaneous AUV geophysical data acquisition and seabed mineral sampling programs for polymetallic nodules in the Eastern Pacific.
