Oh, the Places We'll Go! Exploring the Ocean with Technology

Session ID#: 11244

Session Description:
Please join the Ocean Sciences and Underwater Operations communities to discuss increasing common ground and vision of ocean exploration.

Ocean exploration has been inextricably linked with technology. Marching on from a bucket, Secchi disk and a spyglass to ROVs, satellites and sensors, we keep moving forward developing methods to look deeper and with more detail to improve our understanding of the ocean.

This session will cover the current uses of technologies such as instruments and sensors, sonar and acoustics, manned submersibles commercial diving, ROVs, AUVs and UUVs and where future applications and developments can further the advancement of ocean exploration.
