New technologies, including many from outside the world of ocean sciences, 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, computational simulations, 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.
John 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.
