The Offshore Site Investigation and Geotechnics Committee (OSIG) of the Society for Underwater Technology (SUT Houston) present the course: 'Introduction to Integrated Marine Site Characterization: The Role of  Geology, Geophysics, and Geotechnical Engineering'.

A marine site investigation integrates geology, geophysics, and geotechnical data to develop the soil properties required to understand geological constraints and to gather information to design submarine foundations and layouts. Who should attend? Geoscientists, engineers, and managers who work, contract, and plan marine site survey and geotechnical programs for exploration and field development.

The three-day comprehensive course covers survey planning, acquisition, interpretation, and integration of data, culminating with an in-depth presentation of several integrated case studies. The course is taught by recognized experts in these fields from energy company operators, service contractors, consultants, and academic institutions.
