HYDRO 2016 On-Water Equipment Demos

This Website is for the IFHS Hydro conference 2016. The next conference will take place 30 October – 02 November 2018 in Sidney, Australia. Please see for details.

In addition to the paper presentations and workshops delegates could participate in a range of optional equipment demonstrations.

As the conference venue was situated directly at a marina and close to the Warnemünde cruise terminal and vessel traffic station, there were on-water demos of vessels and equipment. So attendees could learn about the new development of sensors, transducers, sonar and multi-beam equipment during the seminars and workshops – and see them working as well! It has been exciting to take part in hydrographic surveys being done with state of the art equipment at the occasion of this conference and saw how the sea floor was looking like around the conference venue!
