The AHS Awards Scheme recognises those who have made significant contributions to our hydrographic industry.
The first awards under this scheme were presented at HYDRO 2003 in Christchurch. The Awards Scheme panel are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2014 AHS Awards:
- Mr. Wayne Dunn (Australian Hydrographic Service) – Award of Merit – Career Achievement in Hydrography: for an outstanding contribution to hydrographic surveying and mine warfare operations support to the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) over a period spanning 45 years.
- Mr. John Mitchell (National Institute Water and Atmospheric Research, NZ) – Award of Merit – Career Achievement in Hydrography: for an outstanding contribution to marine science and hydrography spanning 40 years. John’s achievements include major multi-disciplinary marine and hydrographic surveys for habitat, nearshore and Antarctic areas. John held a key role in New Zealand’s UNCLOS survey programme and successful submission to the United Nations.
Australasian Hydrographic Symposium 2015
The AHS will be hosting the Australasian Hydrographic Symposium 2015 in warm, sunny Cairns in November 2015.
Cairns is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and is a beautiful, tropical city in northern Queensland – a great place to be, particularly for anyone in wintery northern climates….. We look forward to seeing you next year.
