The report seeks to identify options for developing a world-class oceanographic capability with a reduced carbon footprint.
Sustainable research infrastructure that meets the needs of the scientific community.
It is important that those involved in ocean science and policy minimise the climate impacts generated by oceanographic research.
Future Ship Technologies work package is focused on the next generation of research ships to 2035.
Marine autonomy is already a major contributor to oceanographic research with a range of platforms being available to cater to different data needs.
Whether on ships, MAS or as part of deployed networks, innovation in sensor systems will be key to improving the quality and range of scientific measurements.
Advances in technology will generate increasing volumes of data.
