iMAGE-CREATE-GEOMAR Seafloor Mapping School
iMAGE-CREATE and GEOMAR are currently running the second seafloor mapping school between the 17th – 28th of October (via Zoom).
The iMAGE-CREATE-GEOMAR Seafloor Mapping School provides intensive introductory training in seafloor geology and remote predictive geological mapping techniques. Students are introduced to data compilation and integration, accessing data repositories, how to process different data sets such as multibeam bathymetry and geophysical data, how to set up map projects in a GIS with the relevant data management tools and editors, and how to interpret the compiled data in terms of the geological attributes of the seafloor. Students learn how to construct a geological map legend, create relevant map layers, including regional time-stratigraphic models, and undertake geodynamic reconstructions of large areas of the oceans. The first four days of the Mapping School are an introduction to marine geology and seabed mapping. The remaining 5-6 days consist of practical exercises, lectures, and discussions
