First IHO Assembly Considers Seas and Oceans
This week, Monaco is the venue of the first IHO Assembly. The meeting was officially opened by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco. During the opening ceremony, attention was paid to the new structure of the IHO organisation. Several of the speakers underlined that, in addition to aiding safety of navigation, hydrographic data is increasingly being used for other purposes including science, environmental protection and disaster response.
