Postgraduate Hydrography B

The objective of hydrography is to collect and record about the world’s oceans and seas. It is instrumental in the production of nautical charts and provides necessary tools such as tidal predictions, ocean currents … Hydrographers can also predict erosion patterns, the evolution of beaches and are involved in land-winning and offshore activities.
