Seminar: Maritime traffic patterns, hydrodynamics and risk analyses in Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak

17 december, 2019 @ 11:00 f m - 4:00 e m

Welcome to a day, presenting the latest research on maritime analysis. To be able to reduce shipping accidents, environmental footprint, and maritime infrastructure costs, researchers need to continue develop and test new methods and tools. The improved maritime analysis will allow experts to make predictions about the effects of certain changes made to routes, infrastructures or traffic patterns, and provide better decision support.

The seminar is organized as part of the research project MARIA – MARItime Analyses, in collaboration with Lighthouse. Good opportunities to network, as well as coffee and lunch are included.

The seminar will be in English, free of charge and registration is needed. Welcome!

Last day to register is December 11th.

SSPA, Gothenburg
