Are there tools to address coastal resilience? How do marine renewable energy projects interact with the environment? Integral scientists and engineers will answer these questions and others at the Ocean Sciences Meeting on February 16–21, 2020, in San Diego, California. Craig Jones, Ph.D., Kara Scheu, Ph.D., and Cheryl Hapke, Ph.D., will deliver platform presentations on topics spanning ocean renewable energy, coastal processes, and marine sedimentology. Grace Chang, Ph.D., Kaustubha Raghukumar, Ph.D., Frank Spada, Gene Revelas, and Galen Egan will present posters showing the latest research and tools in ocean optics, ocean acoustics, and artificial intelligence.
In addition, Dr. Scheu and David Revell, Ph.D., will chair and moderate a platform session on February 21 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. titled “Coastal Processes and Climate Change: Scientific Methods and Tools to Characterize the Impacts of Changing Coastal and Nearshore Processes.” Drs. Scheu and Revell will also chair and moderate the associated poster session on February 20 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Dr. Chang is serving on the 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting Program Committee as The Oceanography Society Vice Chair. Dr. Revell will participate on the Young Professionals Career Mentoring Panel—a panel targeted toward students and early career professionals focusing on careers outside of academia—on February 20.
With a theme of “For a Resilient Planet,” this year’s meeting will cover topics related to sustainability, climate change, and more. Learn more about the 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting.
