The Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, Ghent University, Geological Survey of the Netherlands and FPS Economy have the pleasure of inviting you to the conference ‘Marine sands as a precious resource’. During this conference you will get the opportunity to get acquainted with a newly developed decision support system guiding long-term sand extraction in the Belgian and southern Netherlands part of the North sea. The consortium will guide you through the origin, distribution and dynamics of marine sands to inform on resource exploitation in a more sustainable way. Throughout the conference interactive demonstrations will be held on the newly developed tools: volumetric 3D pixel (‘voxel’) models, numerical impact models accounting for geological boundary conditions, a geological data portal and the resource decision support module. A Virtual Reality side event is also foreseen.
