Geodynamics recently attended the biannual US Hydro conference held in Galveston, Texas. This is an important industry event hosted by The Hydrographic Society of America (THSOA) that includes a wide-ranging technical program, extensive workshops and training events, and exhibit hall. In addition to participating as a hydrographic services exhibitor, Geodynamics also co-hosted an impromptu poolside social gathering for conference attendees. Team members Dave Bernstein, Ben Sumners, and Chris Freeman presented technical presentations about management and analysis of sidescan sonar data, seamless topo-bathy surveys for shoreline management, and the use of bathymetric radar for detection of navigational shoaling. And as a sponsor and organizer of the Student Outreach program, Chris Freeman coordinated an event to introduce students of hydrography to leaders in the field. This program supports students’ attendance at the conference, and also provides important mentorship opportunities for future career guidance.
