IS010:
New Platform and Sensor Technologies: Advancing Research, Readiness and Transitioning for Sustained Ocean Observing of Essential Ocean Variables


Session ID#: 28739

Session Description:
The rate of technological evolution in ocean and marine environment sensors and platforms has increased dramatically. Similarly, requirements are evolving and demand for integrated routine observations to address climate, ocean services and ocean health needs is increasing. New autonomous and guided platforms are expanding our operating envelope; improving the diversity of observed variables recorded aboard a single platform and improving efficiencies. Sensor development is benefitting from technical advances across a range of disciplines, including those external to oceanography. These developments offer potential benefits within the sustained ocean observing system of the global and coastal oceans. This session offers an opportunity for the ocean observing technology and stakeholder communities to share technology advances towards addressing GOOS Essential Ocean Variable requirements and key research/marine service needs; identify successful approaches towards transitioning these technologies into sustained observing systems; and identify opportunities to improve the coordination and pace of integrating technologies into sustained observing. Additional questions that could be addressed include: What are the bottlenecks to development? How to source and integrate advanced technologies from other sectors? What are the successful economic models from development into sustained observing? What role should observing networks, government, academia, industry and the philanthropic sector play?
