New technologies are helping oceanographers access and understand the ocean and ocean processes, which drive our planet’s “life-support system.” Robotics, biotechnology, cloud computing, digital imaging, nanotechnology, seismo-acoustic tomography, and universal access to the internet are all having an impact.
These tools and technologies, among others, will create a pervasive human telepresence throughout the global ocean, making it possible to meet the onset of immense environmental and societal challenges in the coming decades, according to John Delaney.
Delaney is a professor of oceanography at the University of Washington, principal investigator and director of the Regional Scale Nodes Program, and the Jerome M. Paros Endowed Chair in Sensor Networks.
