The Australasian Hydrographic Society (AHS) is hosting the HYDRO18 Conference and Trade Exhibition (HYDRO18) being held at Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf, Pyrmont in Sydney, Australia from 30 October to 1 November 2018. The Conference and Exhibition, with its theme of 'The Climate for Change – Hydrography in the 21st Century' will allow delegates and ... Morethe hydrographic profession to consider how best to future utilise the science of hydrography to adapt to climate change, resource sustainability and renewable energy requirements. Hydrography is the key to facing the rising tide of climate change, knowing our oceans and understanding our future.

The AHS is hosting this conference to highlight the challenges and opportunities related to climate change for the world through hydrography. The Conference will provide interest whether as a member of the hydrographic industry, policy maker, academic, or layman.

The AHS will bring together speakers from varying maritime fields including all of the specialist hydrographic streams, maritime transport, oceanography, offshore exploration, environmental science, maritime heritage, defence, tourism, coastal development, ports and harbours, and government. HYDRO18 will also provide a forum to discuss aspects of the opportunities and challenges facing hydrography. A very large proportion of trade is carried by maritime transport and, along with increasing sea levels, our lives will be affected in some way or another. This international symposium seeks to gain insight into these effects and the opportunities that may arise, as well as provide a platform to show how currently important hydrography and the 'Blue Economy'' is globally.

Affiliated with the International Federation of Hydrographic Societies, the AHS is an encompassing learned body administratively comprising of four distinct regions of East Australia, West Australia, New Zealand, and SW Pacific, plus a historical Division - Australia on the Map. The Society provides a South West Pacific and South East Asian regional focus for those interested in hydrography and related sciences.

The Australasian Hydrographic Society welcomes hydrographic and related professionals plus anyone interested in our changing world to the HYDRO18 and Trade Exhibition.
