GeoHab (Marine Geological and Biological Habitat Mapping) is an international association of marine scientists studying biophysical (i.e., geologic and oceanographic) indicators of benthic habitats and ecosystems as proxies for biological communities and species diversity.  The main goals of GeoHab scientists are:

  1. to support government spatial marine planning, sustainable ocean management, and decision making;
  2. to support and underpin the design of marine-protected areas (MPAs);
  3. to conduct scientific research programs aimed at generating knowledge of benthic ecosystems and seafloor geology; and
  4. to conduct living and nonliving seabed resource assessments for economic and management purposes, including the design of fishing reserves.
