Technology Workshops

ACT workshops are designed to aid resource managers, research scientists, and private sector companies by identifying and discussing the current status, standardization, potential advancements, and obstacles in the development and use of sensors and sensor platforms for studying, monitoring, and predicting the state of coastal, fresh and open ocean waters. The workshop goals are to both help build consensus on the steps needed to develop useful tools while also facilitating the critical communications between the various groups of technology developers, manufacturers, and users.  Workshop reports provide a status report on current technologies and recommendations for both ACT and the broader community on steps forward.

Have an idea for an ACT Technology Workshop topic?
