Attending OI2012

BODC are participating in Oceanology International 2012 (Oi12). It takes place from 13-15 March 2012 at ExCeL London, the international exhibition and conference centre in the Docklands.

Oceanology International is a global forum where industry, academia and government share knowledge and connect with the marine technology and ocean science community, looking to improve their strategies for measuring, exploiting, protecting and operating in the world’s oceans. A huge selection of marine technology suppliers will be exhibiting their latest innovations and the event will also include a conference, visiting vessels and live demonstrations. There will also be a Careers Day, which should provide good opportunities for student outreach.

As ever, BODC will have our own stand (it’s L250 if you’re looking for us) and we’ll be demonstrating our current projects and developments. This time, we’re focusing on our efforts rescuing historical sea level data. We’ve updated our promotional brochure to include a leaflet on our work digitising analogue sea level data.

Here’s the floorplan of the stands at Oi12.

BODC's stand from OI2010On the Tuesday and Wednesday morning, the JISC sea level project manager, Elizabeth Bradshaw, will be on the stand, to promote BODC and the JISC project, so come and visit us and pick up a BODC brochure, a free GEBCO poster (showing the GEBCO world map) and a BODC badge!
