IS006:
Innovative and Emerging Research Technologies with proven or potential for High Impact in the Marine Sciences


Session ID#: 28464

Session Description:
We would like to invite abstracts that describe technologically innovative or transformative scientific practices, new and exciting data acquisition methods and analytical approaches, or present the results of successful technology demonstration projects that leverage new engineering or computing developments to advance research in marine science.

We hope that the presentations will focus on innovative and emerging technologies that have potential to increase the efficiency and productivity of scientific marine research and to achieve a more comprehensive understanding of the ocean.

Such advancements may include intelligent applications of new technologies, automated machine learning, new sensing technologies, seafloor imaging, and innovative samplers being deployed on research vessels, as robotic platforms, part of observing systems, or in shoreside laboratories. It is the goal of the session to illuminate a variety of emerging technological capabilities and opportunities for advancing oceanographic research, showcasing the potential to change the way marine research is conducted in the near future.
