An Introduction to Offshore Geophysics and Geotechnical Engineering

An Introduction to Offshore Geophysics and Geotechnical Engineering

16-25 November 2021
Venue: Virtual event

0930 1230hrs GMT

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to site investigation and ground engineering in the offshore environment and is the online equivalent of the face-to-face one successfully run by OSIG for a number of years. Online course activities are spread in four half-days over two weeks. (Tuesday and Thursday mornings).

Industry and academic experts will cover a wide range of topics from planning an offshore site investigation, through technical and operational aspects of data acquisition and reporting, to the practical use of the data in geohazard assessment and foundation design.

Each half-day session will include a set of oral presentations, followed by small-group practical activities with the scope to reinforce the knowledge and get further insight on the topics presented. Small-group activities will also provide an opportunity to discuss with experts in the field while creating an engaging and interactive environment.

The course is intended for non-specialists and will give a broad overview of the offshore market today and how the data acquired is applied to maximise the value of offshore projects. Alongside valuable knowledge sharing, the course is an excellent opportunity to network within the offshore industry.


Subsea UK is now the Global Underwater Hub (GUH).

The GUH is a new strategically focused, intelligence-led organisation that will transform the UK's £8bn underwater industry into one of the largest and fastest-growing industries in the country.
