8th Annual Scientific Diving Symposium
Friday, March 24, 2017
Hosted by NOAA’s Beaufort Lab on Pivers Island, NC
Consider doing a presentation at this year’s Scientific Diving Symposium! This is an opportunity to share your work, learn about other interesting research, gain presentation experience, and network with other scientific divers and researchers in a casual environment. Past topics have included: maritime heritage and archaeology, fish and benthic communities of hard-bottom habitats, coral reef monitoring, advances in sonar technology, citizen science, and invasive species.
The CCSDA Symposium is a free one-day event held annually in Carteret County, NC. Symposium goals are to allow scientific divers to meet and exchange information on methods,
techniques, and research; share knowledge of safer and more efficient diving and research methods; and to educate non-diving scientists about ways divers might aid in their research.
The Symposium’s Morning Session will be a Discussion Group reserved for Scientific Dive Program DSO’s, Administrators, and Dive Supervisors.
The Afternoon Session will feature Scientific Presentations by area researchers and is open to all Scientific Divers, Scientists, and Educators.
