GeoHab Brings Together Geological and Biological Mapping Experts

GeoHab (Marine Geological and Biological Habitat Mapping) is an international association of marine scientists studying biophysical (i.e. geologic and oceanographic) indicators of benthic habitats and ecosystems as proxies for biological communities and species diversity.

The GeoHab 2018 annual conference will be held in Santa Barbara, California at the Fess Parker Resort from Monday May 7 to Friday May 11, 2018.

The annual conference brings geologists, biologists, acousticians, statisticians, spatial analysts and environmental managers from around the world and provides a truly multidisciplinary forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas that underpin sustainable ocean management and mapping.

GeoHab is now in its 17th year and has several publications (see a list of them here​) based on work contributed by members, coordinated through annual meetings.
