The Fourth Underwater Science Symposium

18-20 September 1997


organised by the Underwater Science Group of  Society for Underwater


This Fourth Symposium, planned and organised by the Underwater Science
Group of the SUT will bring together experts and enthusiasts from the
diverse underwater science community. At this low-cost event delegates
will enjoy presentations and posters on current underwater scientific
activities and technology, and with published, peer-reviewed
proceedings. There will be a `hands-on try-it' session where
manufacturers will provide advanced equipment for delegates to test -
for example re-breather systems for diving.

The 1997 Symposium will have a varied programme which aims to reflect
the broad interests of the USG, and to stimulate discussion on diving
technology and scientific methods in areas such as oceanography,
marine biology, marine geology, underwater archaeology, and
photography. Papers on the main conference theme are encouraged from
professional scientists, engineers, students and others with an
interest in all disciplines of marine science and technology.


All aspects of underwater science including Diving Technology, Marine
Archaeology, Scientific Techniques, Inspection Survey and Recovery,
Marine Environmental Sciences

Abstract deadline: 27 January 1997. Authors will be contacted in
February with a view to submitting full manuscripts by lae 

All papers will be peer reviewed and published in the conference
