Oceanography in 2025: Proceedings of a Workshop (Paperback)

Oceanography in 2025: Proceedings of a Workshop By National Research Council, Division on Earth and Life Studies, Ocean Studies Board Cover Image


On January 8 and 9, 2009, the Ocean Studies Board of the National Research Council, in response to a request from the Office of Naval Research, hosted the Oceanography in 2025 workshop. The goal of the workshop was to bring together scientists, engineers, and technologists to explore future directions in oceanography, with an emphasis on physical processes. The focus centered on research and technology needs, trends, and barriers that may impact the field of oceanography over the next 16 years, and highlighted specific areas of interest: submesoscale processes, air-sea interactions, basic and applied research, instrumentation and vehicles, ocean infrastructure, and education.

To guide the white papers and drive discussions, four questions were posed to participants:
What research questions could be answered?
What will remain unanswered?
What new technologies could be developed?
How will research be conducted?
