IOGP Pulse – June 2020

Welcome to the June 2020 edition of IOGP’s Pulse. As we learnt from the latest online survey, safety is one of the topics our readers are most interested in. In this edition, Pulse takes a closer look at the remarkable work of IOGP’s Safety Committee and at IOGP’s Life Saving Rules in particular. We also look at IOGP’s contribution to ocean science, share our view on the EU Recovery Plan and more.

We hope you have a pleasant read.
