BODC at Young Coastal Scientists and Engineers Conference

The 11th Young Coastal Scientists and Engineers Conference takes place at Manchester Conference Centre on Monday 23 and Tuesday 24 March 2015. It is hosted by the University of Manchester's School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering (MACE). This annual event, first held in 2005, will build on the success of previous conferences - furthering its aim to foster an integrated UK coastal research community.

Coastal physical process research in the UK occurs within several disciplines (oceanography, geography, geology, engineering). The interaction between different groups is often limited and this lack of integration is felt most by young researchers. This interdisciplinary conference is aimed at young scientists and engineers concerned with any aspect of physical coastal science or engineering. It specifically allows young researchers the opportunity to discuss and present their work in an informal setting.
The British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC) will be present, making a case for the importance of data management with a poster entitled "Data Management- from collection to archival". If you are attending the event and have any questions that you would like to discuss, please contact Joana Beja at BODC.
