The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) will participate as part of a larger Consortium for Ocean Leadership presence at the OCEANS 2013 MTS/IEEE conference in San Diego, CA on Sept. 23-26.
OCEANS 2013 San Diego brings together the technology, people, and ideas that will help to expand the understanding of the earth’s largest natural resource. The beautiful city of San Diego has a rich maritime history from its discovery in 1542 to the cutting edge technology of today. This year’s conference marks the 7th time the OCEANS conference has been held in San Diego.
With its theme, “An Ocean in Common,” this year’s meeting focuses on the traditional core topics such as ocean observing, remote sensing, and offshore technology, as well as more unique topics of Government/Industry/Academia Synergy, Marine Security and Defense, and San Diego Maritime History.
