The OERA is proud to present a webinar series to highlight recent and ongoing research in the offshore energy sector in Nova Scotia.
The OERA webinar series is designed to help disseminate information on the research activities and results of projects in geoscience and marine renewable energy. Webinars are designed to be a forum for industry, researchers, regulators and community stakeholders to share information, get informed, and discuss research results and implications.
Our webinars are geared towards a broad audience with a balance between non-technical and scientific jargon, prioritizing research results and their implications for the development of the offshore energy sector.
Everyone is welcome to attend OERA's first live webinar and participate in the question and answer session with the presenter. Please follow the link below to register for the webinar. More information can be found here.

(9 am Pacific; 12 noon Eastern; 4 pm GMT)
This webinar will present an innovative application of LIDAR mapping and ocean modeling technologies.
Nova Scotia’s Atlantic coast exhibits a variety of shorelines that may be vulnerable to contamination in the event of an offshore oil spill. In turn, variable currents, changing water levels, shoals, and exposed seaside conditions make effective spill response difficult for tidal inlets. These conditions also present risks to the health and safety of first responders with respect to secure access and safe navigation.
Join Dr. Tim Webster to learn how high-resolution imagery, topo-bathymetric LIDAR, and hydrodynamic modelling can be used to improve oil spill response planning and reaction in near coastal environments.
