This website – dedicated to the OfS V Symposium, which was held in Venice, Italy, on 23-28 October 2022 – is being maintained and update regularly, on a 6-month timescale, to provide a reference point for all follow-up activities and additional results emerging in the wake of the “Oceans from Space” conference series. More information on OfS V, including details about the Symposium background, as well as copies of its Program and Proceedings, are provided in the following pages of this website. The latest post-conference news are listed here below.

The compilation of the MDPI Remote Sensing OfS V Special Issue is continuing and approaching its conclusion. As planned at the Symposium, 10 contributions were selected and are presently in the process of being submitted and reviewed, or published already in final form. Six articles have been posted on the Special Issue web pages; two are currently being processed and the two more will be submitted shortly. The Special Issue should be completed within 2024.

As its first endeavor, the virtual NGO The Pillars of Hercules Foundation (PoHF), is proposing an International Workshop that should continue the OfS V debate on climate change, sea level rise and the fate of coastal sites in the Venice class. The draft proposal of this event, titled “The Pillars of Hercules: A Mediterranean MOSE?”, is available in the NEWS section here below. Comments & suggestions, addressed at the Symposium Secretariat, would be most welcome.
