ED013:
“Ship-to-Shore”: Ocean Sciences in a Changing World


Session ID#: 27952

Session Description:
In recent years, the use of telepresence and other technologies in remote ocean science research has expanded considerably. As these technologies continue to advance and grow in popularity, new opportunities to engage with scientists in the field through “ship-to-shore” communication, education, and outreach have emerged. Ship-to-shore opportunities have the ability to reach large, diverse audiences globally and create interactive research and learning experiences by which we can promote ocean exploration, facilitate research, and educate and inspire future generations. Examples of “ship-to-shore” are wide-ranging and include, but are not limited to, the use of live video and data feeds, interactive video and conference calls, social media interactions, and more. This session aims to provide a forum for presenting ship-to-shore research, education, and outreach programs, with the goal of sharing international experiences and lessons learned. Many programs and opportunities exist, but often they are not known on a global scale and are therefore underutilized. Presentations will describe existing case studies and examples of how scientists and educators are using ship-to-shore connections to engage with students, the public, stakeholders, and other researchers.
