Welcome to the GeoHab 2015

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 2015 annual conference will be held for the first time in South America. in the historic city of Salvador-Brazil, from the 3th 4th to the 8th of May. We are pleased to invite you to come to Brazil and join us in 2015.

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



GeoHab 2015 will take place at the Pestana Hotel, in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil from the 3th to the 8th of May, 2015.
